Naming The Animals

I am participating in the group exhibition Naming the Animals at Curious Matter.

This is from the catalog essay:

In our collective effort to understand the world, we’re driven to name and catalog everything around us. From the detailed observations of prehistoric cave painters through modern ecology and zoology, humans have been compelled to describe and render the other living things that inhabit the earth. Not necessarily purely aesthetic or scientific, naming and cataloging can include the assignment of moral or metaphorical associations. Implicit in these actions is our desire to declare and understand ourselves.

Please go to the Curious Matter site to read the entire essay.
Naming the Animals is a two part exhibition in cooperation with Proteus Gowanus in Brooklyn and runs from 
April 3 - May 15, 2011 at Curious Matter
