The not-so-secret life of zoo animals

(work in progress)

a video project documenting the lives of animals in zoos, or otherwise
displaced, or adapted to an un-natural habitat.

The recurring theme that one notices immediately after spending a few attentive
hours--or days--in a zoo, is that many of the animals are pacing back and forth.
It's a cliché, but it is true. But what else might be going on there? This video goes on a
journey, lingering in front of cages, aquariums, and "habitats"...and discovers--
of course--the pacing animal, but also many other complexes, psychological
states, games, and affections...
