Exhibition Information

Video Screen CapturesVideo artist Sam Easterson has been collecting footage from the perspective of animals and plants since 1998. Amusing, captivating and thought-provoking, his work offers viewers an unconventional perspective on the natural world.

I just can’t resist trying to empathize with animals and plants. I think that in the process of attempting to learn what it’s like to be an animal or plant, I learn more about what it means to be human.”
–Sam Easterson

Extending beyond the gallery to the future home of the IMA’s Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park*, Nature Holds My Camera offers outdoor activities including sketching, exploring, storytelling and the chance to unlock new video of the underground world.

After exploring the exhibition, share your point of view through hands-on activities such as an ongoing, online community discussion.

Nature Holds My Camera: The Video Art of Sam Easterson is made possible through the generous support of an anonymous donor.
