Secret Fauna

Please follow the link. I love this. One person wrote that this exhibit "calls into question the nature of truth and the infallibility of scientific reason." It basically deals with perception and mystery.

The intro to the Joan Fontcuberta book Twilight Zones states that "Reality changes... Art and science are two ways of approximating to reality. In both cases, one starts from the same occupation: reality, or one or other of its parts, is infinite in register and the mind can only transmit finite objects. To know is to deal with the anxiety of not knowing by reducing the infinite to something finite."
