Trout Fishing in America and Other stories
Artists Bryndis Snæbjörnsdóttir (Iceland) and Mark Wilson (England) explore the networked effects of conservation initiatives in Arizona. Over two years, they researched programs underway to reintroduce the California Condor and the Humpback Chub into the Grand Canyon. Through humor, wonder and surprise, their installation of photographs, videos and sculpture explores the complexity of human-animal interactions and their combined impact on ecologies.
This project is supported by a research grant from The Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability at ASU. Additional support generously provided by Arizona Game and Fish Department Heritage Fund, University of Cumbria, U.K., the Helme Prinzen Endowment, The Steele Foundation, the City of Tempe, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, ASU Department of English and the ASU Art Museum Creative Impact Board.
