Seven bronze horns on a modified laboratory ring stand comprise this sculpture. Each horn is engraved with a word, phrase or equation provided by a researcher. These inscriptions are poetic responses to the question: “What is the impact of female ibex on the environment?” The sculpture, made of bronze and laboratory equipment, evokes a conversation across time. Materials reinforce the notion that ibex were nearly hunted to extinction and have recovered thanks to human and scientific intervention.
