a study of

neotropical frogs

in

created environments





D. pumilio bastimenos



QUESTION:
What is the Art here?

The frogs are living (and thriving) in relationship to their environments.






D.tinctorius cobalt






Is the environment the art?
...or is it the image?






D. imitator





OK
This is a study into the environment of keeping neotropical frogs
in an enclosed environment
out of their native environment
...and how that pertains to Art.

All this is rather sexy in its own way
...to me.






D. castaneoticus





The castaneoticus dance.
They were dancing today.






E. silverstonei






Art evolves in realtionship to the environment from which it comes.






D. galactonotus






Over the next few days and/or years I'll post images of my environment
in relationship to these frogs environment.






D. galactonotus






These images are not the art!





D. galactonotus





These environments are shaped by the needs of the frogs.





D. galactonotus





Art is the experience.
The art object simply evokes the experience.





D. galactonotus





The environments that contain the frogs are continually changing.





D. galactonotus





These images were all taken one afternoon.





E. silverstonei





The images intentionally include the environment.
...blured glass and all.





E. silverstonei





...but what do you see?





E. silverstonei





I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.
