Give Take Shelter2021
Documentary sculpture made during the lambing season of 2021 on the Dickinson College Farm.
Collaboration with Danielle Moser
This structure was originally built by Danielle Moser to house two lambs and then adapted as an interactive, temporary artwork. The ewe who birthed the lambs had a difficult labor with triplets, which resulted in the rejection of two who then required bottle-feeding. During its original installation, the shelter was regularly refreshed, semi-deconstructed, and reconstructed as the lambs strengthened and adapted to their caregivers and temporary living space. In the act of caring for meat- and wool-producing animals, we were at once giving and taking.
