A Video Installation by Sam Easterson
May 26 2012 - April 28 2013
About the Exhibition
Sam Easterson’s groundbreaking work lets viewers see the world from an animal’s perspective, by making videos shot from cameras mounted on creatures ranging from bison to alligators. Easterson says, “I just can’t resist trying to empathize with animals and plants. I think that in the process of attempting to learn what it’s like to be an animal or plant, I learn more about what it means to be human.” He will create special video for the Museum, which will be displayed on seven flat-screen monitors in the Member’s Gallery. The Museum will feature his installation for one year, then have rights to recreate it in perpetuity.
Video artist Sam Easterson has been honored with exhibits at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the New Children’s Museum in San Diego, the National Media Museum, London, England, and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada.
