Director's Statement:

Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom debuted on January 6, 1963 and ran through 1988. Its "real life" footage brought the wilds of Africa, the Amazon River and other exotic locales into the living rooms of millions of Americans. In this footage that features animals of the Louisiana Bayous, I edited the video, removing the passages of voice narration and humans speaking. The jumps and hard edges are a result of digitally splicing these passages and rejoining the ends. As an artist concerned with the dynamics of the environment, my interests in technology, anthropomorphism and the manipulation of nature are current themes in my work.
