A Secret Wilderness In Detroit
A live art installation documents the wildlife amidst an urban landscape.
Artists Paul Elliman & Nicole Macdonald have been documenting the movements and sounds of the wildlife that has sprung up in the ruins of the now defunct Bell Isle Zoo of Detroit and they are now displaying them as video and audio recordings via a TV and large subwoofer installed at the Casco in Utrecht. The zoo was closed down a few years ago due to lack of funds but is now home to a thriving ecosystem consisting of a variety of wildlife and birds.
