CREATED BY GARRET KANE
The ability of some creatures to imitate others, either by sound or appearance, or to merge with their environment for protective purposes.
We converse with AI.
We clone sheep.
We can replace our bones,
our ears, eyes and organs
Meat isn’t just raised.
It’s 3D printed.
Life isn’t just lived.
It’s rebuilt and rendered.
Feelings aren’t only experienced,
but can be prescribed and ingested.
Daily life has been replicated
into a copy of what nature began.
And though it’s caused problems.
It propells our species forward.
Replication is in our DNA.
And our ability to mimic the reality around us
will ultimately ensure our survival.

By transforming The Prow into an ‘aquarium’ with a synthetic school of fish it becomes a fitting place to showcase this idea. We remind an audience at the heart of one of the largest manmade environments on earth that the world is no longer just nature itself, it is shared by the nature of man as well.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Garret Kane is an assemblage sculpture artist based in Brooklyn NY.
See his "Mimicri" installation now at the FlatIron Prow Art Space in New York City.

almost all his sculptures embody the idea that human beings were made by nature
and through technology we attempt to recreate nature in our own image.
