Traces of Being: People and Coyotes in Urban and Suburban Canada

Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Gazetas, Calliope
Abstract:

My thesis examines how human/coyote interactions in urban and suburban
Canada are representative of larger issues surrounding our relationship to nature and
non-humans. I have created a series of drawings and laser-cut coyote bodies that respond
to a set of limited cultural perceptions of coyotes through observing, exploring, and engaging
those perceptions. My work is informed by the collection of data from online surveys,
interviews, participatory and observational research, and photographs from wildlife
cameras. These pieces represent multiple perspectives of coyotes based on community
responses and biological studies.
