Biennial of the Americas

15th August, 2013

Denver Night: A Concert With Music and Animals was a unique, one night art extravaganza created by Adam Lerner and Chris Kallmyer for the Biennial of the Americas. Chris Bagley and I were asked to participate and we came up with this video installation.
Codename: Pronghorn
The pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) is native to the western United States. Though not an antelope, it is often mistaken as one. The installation is an abandoned security station with a bank of televisions monitoring the changing west. The pronghorn is is the only surviving member of its taxonomic family; about five sister species existed when humans entered North America and all but the A. americana are now extinct.
