Whoever Left the Dead Duck on the Front Step–Your Duck is in the Fridge
This video installation is an ironic narrative exploring complex inter-species relationships in the North through the repeated photographic documentation of a single test tube. Floating in the Arctic Ocean, nestled with a dead duck, held up to the sun by bare toes; the test tube is a yardstick, an optical device, a vessel, and a body.
