ELIZABETH D’AGOSTINO | mega fauna and other collisions


mega fauna and other collisions is a print-media installation project that explores the complexities of the changing landscape, emphasizing how various paths of nature have been interrupted by urban expansion and resource consumption. This work employs strategies related to collecting and archiving components of biodiversity and references images from plants, animals and microorganisms that inhabit the Canadian landscape. Using Japanese paper (washi), print media methods and collage, a living laboratory is produced creating a printed catalogue of fictional categories and elements of nature within an invented narrative.
