Let the Outside In Prints by Caitlin Parker

We've been fans of artist Caitlin Parker for awhile, ever since we saw her 11 Cornelia Ave. project, where she a transformed a dollhouse-sized model house into a planter of sorts, a beautiful and poignant work exploring the relationship between humans, architecture and nature. Her latest piece expands on that theme — she installed a small house deep in the woods and left a camera to capture what happened next.

The result is a series of prints and a video showing the various animal visitors to the little house — including deer, raccoons, a bluebird, and a beaver — that offer a surprisingly voyeuristic glimpse at its slow integration into the landscape through a year of changing seasons. Seven prints from the project are available for sale through Caitlin's blog and are especially appealing this time of year, when we're on the verge of saying good bye to the outdoors for the winter.
