Cathrine Chalmers creates photographs that explore our uneasy relationship with nature. Caterpillars devour a tomato. A praying mantis snacks upon one of those juicy worms, and then becomes a meal for a self-contented frog. Of course, praying mantises have their own curious cycle of life. Cockroaches masquerade as their more aesthetically pleasing cousins, or are sent to their deaths in grim mockeries of criminal executions. Short interview here. Not for the squeamish.
By the way...Americans may have eaten mad cow.
Global warming starts to destroy the bottom of the food chain. I'm actually not being ironic or anything here. It's a rainy, dark Friday and I feel like human beings really ARE all gonna die, like, soon. What do I do? What kind of Harlan Ellison/William Gibson/Neil Gaiman-esque world is my little daughter going to grow up into?
