Taxonomica is a series of sculptures created from 3D scans of taxidermied animals captured during the Autumn Biophilia Residency in Gatineau, Canada. These 3D models were modified using displacing forces representing the fragile nature of digitization and the way data can be corrupted or modified.

Artist's Statement:

"Taxonomic classification is a system used to organize and define characteristics of biological organisms. This process is useful for helping us understand the complex network and characteristics of the world around us. However with the onset of digitization, all things become susceptible to error and the manipulation of data. The information left for future generations becomes fact, and we become dependent on that very data to define the reality of the past."
