Artist Residency

Animal, Vegetable, Video: Memories of Manhattan from a Millennium Ago

Sam Easterson
Additional participants Cara O'Connor

During his residency, Sam Easterson created a map of Manhattan out of electric cables on the gallery floor, and within it arranged taxidermy examples of five species of Manhattan’s earliest inhabitants: the Pitcher plant, deer, coyote, mouse, and lobster. Three video monitors suspended above the installation show the point of view of each creature as captured by cameras attached to the live animals and plant.

In conjunction with this residency, Art in General publishes a brochure with a text by Cara O’Connor. It can be downloaded here for free. For a printed version, purchase this publication along with the entire set of Art in General’s residency brochures in the online store for only $5.
