An evocative, site-specific installation by artists Lane Hall and Lisa Moline combined sound, animation, and computer print technologies in an exploration of nature. Inspired by images of animal avatars from the Edward S. Curtis film In the Land of the War Canoes (1914), Hall and Moline’s installation subtly explored issues of authenticity, technology, and nature.
