Transition (Bear*)

Transition (Bear*), 2006
Photographs, 5 x 3′

These life-sized digital images were created in response to the safe, sanitized, idea of hybridity characteristic of mainstream versions of community, ecological risk, sustainability, and human mixing (whether it be genetic, racial, gendered, or mythical), all of which implied that there is a pre-hybrid state of purity and un-mixing. The figure(s) in Transition (Bear*) foreground a version of hybridity that is messier, creative, violent, and collaborative.
