Seals in the Attic


Justine Cooper was the American Museum of Natural History's first artist in residence. One (the?) result of her time there is a series of photographs of the hidden corners of the museum and its storage spaces, and the collections therein. (Cooper and amnh curator Rob DeSalle speak on Thursday 3/31.) In grad-school speak, the "passage of the scientific object into the canon of western scientific order is presented as an architecture of desire and a measure of cultural, historical and scientific value." Pretty, pretty pictures.
