Mark Dion, Urban Wildlife Observation Unit

"Working closely with scientists and non-art institutions, Mark Dion (b.1961, New Bedford, MA) mines the fields of ecology, botany, ethnography, and natural history museum displays in realizing his installations and sculptures. His long-standing interest in environmental issues has led him to create Urban Wildlife Observation Unit, a constructed urban ecological center that will allow park visitors to reexamine their surroundings by taking a closer look at the natural environment - the animals, bugs and trees - in Madison Square Park."
