Over the past decade, Dana Sherwood‘s art has pioneered an approach to understanding humans’ relationship to wild nature through her experiments with cross-species communication. In this talk the artist will share insights from her artistic journey around the globe, using food as a conduit to commune with wild animals in Florida, South Africa, Denmark, Brazil, Mongolia, and last summer in Old Lyme.
