Comprised of paintings, photographs, and video, this installation serves as a commentary upon, and memorial to, one of the most bizarre media spectacles in American history, and the exotic and posthumously-exoticized animals who died along the highways and in the backyards of Ohio in October, 2011. Painted portraits representing each exotic animal that was tragically killed in Zainesville, Ohio were used to make paper lanterns in a memorial held on the one year anniversary of the initial release. These photos detail the memorial, held on a gun range, in which these 49 lanterns were (re)released into the sky and shot down with bullets, arrows, and large drops of rain.
