Taming The Wild

photographic series, 24" x32" archival inkjet, 2008

These photos were taken during the 2008 Baie St Paul Symposium. The animal puppets depicted each represent one of the 13 artists featured at this event. These artists as a group chose these animals and I responded by creating stop-motion puppets using hot-glue, foam, fur, …ect. The puppets were then posed based on daily interactions and dialogue during the residency.
