invasive species

told from the perspective of “the local”, invasive species explores how pythons were artificially thrust onto a fragile south florida ecosystem and continue to challenge the ethical, social, and psychological paradigms of a people learning to live side-by-side with a new predator. the landscape is presented as a dangerous, wild space that can harbor and effectively conceal an entire breeding population of apex predators, as the python invasion becomes a vehicle to poetically meditate on metaphysical concepts of place, masculinity, and the indigenous. collaboration with jeremy chandler and mark cannariato.
