To me, on of the few visual artists that successfully works the interstices of the relationship among humans, human-made scientific perspective, human culture and all of those non-human organisms.
Some of his work is at Leo Koenig Inc.:

I saw Romantic Attachments at the Tang last year. It was part of a really exciting multi-disciplinary exhibit on molecules.

Great work to see in person.

I love this piece by Rachel Berwick for human, non-human interaction.

I meant to comment on these yesterday, and now I cannot recall what I was going to say (very exciting day in the Christelverse, you see).

However, I am still really impressed with both artists, and quite taken with the Rachel Berwick, in particular. Thanks so much for posting and for once again enlarging my cultural knowledge-base.

Thanks for the heads up about Rachel Berwick! Her work looks incredibly interesting. I am still trying to decide about the parrots.

You're welcome.

From what I've seen of her work, it's all bird-related in one way or another.

Speaking of parrots, I just discovered that Connecticut has a flock of monk parakeets. Pretty wild to think of them all huddling together during those nasty coastal winter storms...

Even wilder, this flock shared a nesting tree with some roosting great horned owls.

Berwick, I believe, lives right around where the flock does. I wonder if it inspired her at all.

For those in the Minneapolis area, A Journey That Wasn't by Pierre Huyghe sounds great, too.
