Shelf_Life [New Nature] (2015)

Marlena Novak: video and 3D
Jay Alan Yim: audio

As metaphorical reference to Borges' imaginary Chinese encyclopedia "The Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge", a metal shelf menagerie hosts a myriad of representatives from the animal world: virtual creatures mobilize and the remains of once living entities intermingle with animals that have been molded, carved, sewn, or folded. Shelf_Life is one of twelve sections that comprise the twenty-minute video installation "Naming Things".
