Amy Stein’s Domesticated at Clamp Art


Opening tonight at ClampArt

In Domesticated, artist Amy Stein explores the archetypal motif of man verses nature.  More specifically, her photographs explore the tenuous relationshp between man and animals as human civilization continues to encroach upon nature.  Informed by actual newspaper accounts and oral histories from citizens of the small town of Matamoras in Northeast Pennsylvania, which borders a state forest, Stein’s photographs are inspired by true events.

The Giant Armadillo

“Although it is difficult to tell its size from this photo, the giant armadillo deserves its name and can weigh up to about 32 kilograms (71 pounds) in the wild! With its impressive weight and enormous elongated front claws, it digs out and eats termite and ant colonies. Unfortunately, this animal has been extirpated from many parts of its range due to over-hunting and is now rare in most areas.

National Zoo scientists set up camera traps in a remote section of the Amazon rain forest to gather data about the variety of species that inhabit it. Learn more about the project here:…”
