Snake Detection Theory

Site intervention document with woolly monkeys, prosthetic signs, 2014

Snake Detection Theory helps monkeys to evolve by teaching them to point at snakes.The site-responsive intervention, carried out during a residency at the Tiputini Research Station in the Ecuadorian Amazon, consists of me demonstrating the nuances of pointing to howler monkeys in an enormous fig tree, using a range of "tools" and "signs": prosthetic hands, photographic aids, and popular cinema.
In consultation with Dr. Emilia Martins.
