Daymares of a Mad Cow

Large-format Digital Prints, at the Richard L. Nelson Gallery, as part of the Gold Star exhibition, 2007.

A series of large-format digital prints, each roughly four feet by five feet, relating images sprung from the brain of a cow with Mad Cow disease. The pathology of the disease finds correspondences with episodes of bovine mythology; echoes of the cow-gods Audumbla, Io, Hathor, and Kamadhenu are woven into scenes of the cow eating, drinking, stumbling, suffering. Two flanking prints depict the cow watching a cannibal spider preparing its web-wrapped feast.
