i've been reconsidering the piece i wanted to make where i just let live crows into the gallery space - because of obvious reasons: live animals is an insurance risk not to mention cruel, and it is illegal to taxidermy crows in the US. so, i thought using fake crows would ruin the 'fear' that comes with real crows - but after buying a couple i'm starting to think that, installed correctly, they might deliver the same initial feeling of fear, followed by ridiculousness (e.g., a large shelf of unmoving replica crows all posed the same way).
-not climate change, but the fear & spectacle that surrounds it
-marker for the rising fear
-direct fear & talisman (talisman that aid in psychological help)
