Animal, Vegetable, Video: Where the Buffalo Roam


Sam Easterson

Working with wildlife experts, Sam Easterson outfitted a herd of Buffalo with helmet-mounted video cameras. In Animal, Vegetable, Video: Where the Buffalo Roam, the artist continues his ongoing project of creating gallery and museum installations out of footage that has been taken from the perspective of animals. Easterson has previously created material with smaller animals, and hopes to build the world’s most comprehensive library of video footage that has been captured from the point-of-view of animals and plants. Animal, Vegetable, Video: Where the Buffalo Roam combines Easterson’s artistic pursuits with his background as a professionally trained landscape researcher and his interest in the history of American landscape.
