Alter Nature: We Can – Mark Dion – Mobile Wilderness Unit – Wolf (2006)
In this installation, Mark Dion shows a wolf in its natural habitat. Dion not only refers to the concept of nature as wilderness – nature as unspoilt physical matter – but he also demonstrates the near impossibility of experiencing this notion of nature. Although his installations are like dioramas of natural history museums their main aim is to question how we as human beings develop our notion of nature.
