Project Statement:

Dan Falco is interested in physical and psychological changes that occur in humans and animals and questions whether these changes are natural or unnatural. Through his work, Falco records his observations of everyday life and attempt to comprehend how we may be affected by the choices we make. Falco addresses issues of hybridization, mutation, and modification, popular culture. While at Spudnik, Falco created a suite of intaglio prints that posed senarios for what is natural and what is not, as a result of genetic manipulation, advancement of science and technology and the modification of our environment.
