Do you like this story?
As part of his upcoming exhibition at the IMA, a web site has been established to give you more information about Sam Easterson and the works that will be on display later this month. The web site, Nature Holds My Camera, is one in a number of new attempts the IMA has made to reach a larger audience. You can also see several of the IMA's videos on their Youtube page.
For those who have yet to read about what to expect from the Sam Easterson exhibit, here is a passage from the web site:
In order to create this unconventional viewpoint of the natural world, Easterson attaches small modified security cameras to the bodies of the animals, which have included a sheep, falcon, scorpion, buffalo, wolf, turkey and tarantula, among many others. Tumbleweeds and pitcher plants have also held cameras for Easterson. Easterson does not use anything that is invasive, and the animals are not harmed during the short time that the video is recorded.
