Taxidermic

For this project I wanted to create a series of taxidermied heads in miniature using a process which is capable of creating multiples. As a printmaker it is important to my own practice and aesthetic choices that the processes I choose to use be able to reproduce almost exactly any imagery I create. For this project I feel that multiplicity speaks to the nature of taxidermy as an art form, and by creating my own personal collection of taxidermied animals in miniaturized form, I am also referencing the power dynamics which can take place in the production of, and placement of the forms themselves.

In this project specifically I created five animal heads (I am still trying to figure out the logistics/possibilities of display) that are representations of animals hunted and mounted as taxidermy in this fashion in North America. And lastly please excuse my poor documentation, the images themselves were printed on the 3D printer with the translucent filament which made capturing all of the detail in a satisfactory manor difficult.
