Video Response to Tiger at Rest by Antoine-Louis Barye for PEER ONE IMPORTS

at the Walters Art Museum, 2012

Curated by Kari Altmann

"SAFARINON is a new project by artist Bradley Benedetti which recycles and scrambles the urgent material from ecological advertisements and topical blogs with personal text messaging, outsourced tech support with Earth, and user account authenticity. The result is a "Multi-species Friend Merger" in which endangered species must exist, socially, in a mutated ecological network of coded language and online propaganda, while working together to save themselves. Welcome to the new habitat. Savey Planet."
