Some new thoughts
- Marina mentioned webcams in zoos and it made me think. What if I placed a webcam on taxidermy? The same way that taxidermy is a still image of a living thing, the webcam will show live footage of a still creature and hopefully provoke thought about man’s attempt to freeze time and emulate nature. I think it could really be interesting and want to approach the American Museum of Natural History to ask if I can place a camera on one of their dioramas.
- Also, yesterday I ordered a bird from ebay, all cleaned and prepared for study / taxidermy and I am looking forward to experimenting with it and also maybe with the bird that Marina found. I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty and dealing with two birds in different levels of human intervention.
- This is just great, Banksy.
