INterSECTS: Where Arthropods and Homo Sapiens Meet
This audio guide accompanies the exhibition INterSECTS: Where Arthropods and Homo Sapiens Meet, on display through August 13, 2022.
INterSECTS presents excerpts from artist Peter Kuper’s forthcoming graphic novel, which he developed during his tenure as a fellow at The New York Public Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers in 2020–21. Finding himself virtually alone in the vast Beaux-Arts rooms and hallways of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Kuper began imagining arthropods occupying this unexpectedly and unprecedentedly vacant environment.
Credits: The audio guide was directed and produced by Charles Cuykendall Carter. Soundtrack courtesy of David Rothenberg. All music is from his album BUG MUSIC (2013), published by Mysterious Mountain Music (BMI).
