Last summer I posted Caitlin Parker's project Let The Outside In, where she built a little house in her backyard and filmed it as the wildlife took over and it decayed. I fell in love with her project immediately, I serioulsy thought as a child if I extended my hands and sang that birds and animals would emerge from the woods. A la Snow White. A little misguided maybe, but I always had a wild (no pun intended) imagination when it came to animals and wildlife. So it makes sense that I would dig her project where she invites animals and the outdoors in.
A year later, Caitlin is currently working on a ten minute film that spans the entire year of the little house and the animals that visited it, which will be shown at Wave Hill in September of 2011. Above is a newer 4 minute vid of her process thus far. In the meantime she is offering prints of her project. Caitlin generously sent me the beaver print titled September 21, 2009. I think it's so adorable and can't wait to hang it. You can see and purchase her prints here.
