Vanishing Acts

Since its founding in 2006, The Canary Project—an artistic partnership between Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris—has focused on creating works advocating for the awareness of a host of ecological issues. The collective’s recent collaboration with accomplished photographer Christina Seely can now be seen in the exhibit Next of Kin: Seeing Extinction through the Artist’s Lens at the Harvard Museum of Natural History through June 4. Consisting of Seely’s photos and daguerreotypes of endangered species set in mirror boxes that make the images fade from the viewer’s gaze and an installation that includes rare specimens from extinct and threatened creatures culled from Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology, the show illuminates the danger to our animal “kin” through an immersive, audio-visual approach that is both powerful and poignant.
