My name is Karl Cronin and I'm the creator of the Somatic Natural History Archive.
With this project I will use movement sketches to document the life histories of 200 plants and animals. This work is similar to John James Audubon’s drawings of birds, only I will be using expressive movement.
I have spent the past three years developing a research practice in which I use all my faculties to document how particular species interact with their environment. These methods blend environmental science field research with expressive movement. Following my field research this year, I will begin sharing my discoveries in a series of public presentations - a mixture of story-telling, movement, and film.
Kickstarter donations will be used to cover expeditions to Plainfield, MA (July 8-18) and Santa Fe, NM (Aug 30 - Sept 4).
I appreciate your support!
