Predator Project


This installation considers the implications of labeling humans as apex predators within a conflict-based view of "nature." It aligns 3D vision/depth perception as a trait of predatory animals with historical use of 3D surveillance in war, overlaid with recurring animal metaphors and symbols, and culminates in the presentation of alternative, provocative views of a more peace-driven ecology.
