Natural History of the Sixth Extinction in Ann Hamilton’s the common S E N S E

October 18, 2019 , 12:00-1:00 pm, Flex Space at the Digital Scholarship Lab MSU Library, 2nd floor.

Coffee and refreshments provided

Ann Hamilton’s 2014 the common SENSE presented an extensive collection of animal images and objects from the natural history and library collections of the University of Washington in a participatory installation that invited visitors to consider the impact of their own desires to consume non-human animals. This paper analyzes Hamilton’s work relation to early natural history museum ambitions and displays, and to the current mass extinction that is underway, and argues that Hamilton’s use of archival materials creates a mode of narrating history that responds to current feelings about threats to the future.
