About this project

This series of work explored natural history collections including the D’Arcy Thompson Museum in Dundee, and the Bell Pettigrew Museum in St Andrews.  Stuffed animal displays have potential for multiple interpretations; their presence is complex, concealing many issues and cultural references.  It is precisely this ambivalence that is of interest and that gives them as a subject matter much potential for creative interpretation.
