24hr Wildlife Museum (FIELDCLUB)

2006

An outdoor museum displaying evidence of human interaction with the land for the benefit of the non-human.

A collection of dated and verified archeological artefacts were found during farming activities at FIELDCLUB. The collection was displayed 24/7 on-site at the mercy of the elements in an assortment of salvaged wine-chiller cabinets. The cabinets' 12volt LED lighting was activated automatically at night and recharged by solar power by day - allowing passing non-humans to view the displays at any time.

A timelapse camera was occasionally set up to monitor interactions. The resulting sequences revealed a magpie, a robin, and some slugs taking a passing interest.
