Now in-progress: We are exploring the presence of urban wildlife on the SAIC campus through an ongoing mapping project that focuses on animal sightings and potential habitat locations. We have identified points of interest around campus and are in the process of documenting them through the use of camera traps, as well as looking for evidence of animal occupation in existing surveillance footage. Check out some of the documentation we’ve collected so far! Video footage will be updated periodically, on exhibition as part of Outside Design, at SAIC’s Sullivan Galleries in Chicago.
Special thanks to SAIC and Sullivan Galleries staff for making this research possible!
