Seventy-seventh Connection: In honor of gathering darkness
It’s October and the days are growing shorter. In honor of the gathering darkness here is a red bat on the cover of one of my Red Mammals (©2007) artists’ books. Created for my installation Red Animals – two cylindrical structures with 7 tiers each of blind accordion books arranged in circles. Arranged according to evolutionary complexity: Red Insects and Red Invertebrates are at the bottom; Red Fish, Red Reptiles, and Red Amphibians in the middle; and various combinations of Red Mammals (including Red Weasels, Red Rodents, Red Aquatic Mammals) at the top.
