Museum of Animal Perspectives — "In a pig's eye"


Fantastic.

Wrote Rachel Saslow in the Washington Post, "See what the world looks like to an armadillo [above], an alligator, a scorpion and other animals at the Museum of Animal Perspectives (MAP), an online collection of videos curated by artist and naturalist Sam Easterson. To get his impressive 'crittercam' images, Easterson attaches tiny wireless cameras to the backs of animals; you can hear the scorpion's legs scratch against the earth as it scuttles about. Easterson's videos have been on display at brick-and-mortar museums as well, such as the International Center of Photography in New York. The artist's goal is to 'expand the public's capacity to empathize with animals and plants.' Check it out at http://www.sameasterson.com/animalborneimaging.html."

Who is the fun-guy who pasted a camera on the alligator?
