From The Open (Monster Series), that display animals in captivity within constructed landscapes. The animals and landscapes are collaged from disparate elements collected during my travels over the last five years and reflect my interest in natural history and the complex relationship to colonialism. These surrealist landscapes are a comment on our present times. The footage was shot in zoos and in natural landscapes in Toronto, Montreal, Berlin, London, Rotterdam, Paris, Monaco, San Diego and New York.
