Projects > Feral Cakes, 2017
Residing deep within the suburban sprawl of South Florida I began setting out fruits, vegetables, meats, cakes and other confectionery concoctions for the local animal inhabitants. The menus grew from a knowledge of the natural diet of animals such as raccoons, foxes, possums and other creatures I expected to find living along the borders of human habitation. Filming over the days, weeks and months I began to get to know the preferences and predilections of their régimes, and, usually these foods did not include green vegetables and apples, but donuts, hot dogs, pizza and lamb chops. A conversation started to emerge as I watched my videos each morning from the previous nights banquet and adjusted, tweaked and tested them. Below are a selection of video stills and photos of the banquets. A short excert can be viewed here or below.
