Carptactacle

Aliens are invading our rivers.

Carp as an invasive species is the nugget of this ongoing conversation between Molly Balcolm Raleigh, Shanai Matteson, and Janaki Ranpura. How does this fish become an indicator for attitudes about life in the river and, consequently, our lives on land?

This project was spawned in Public Art St Paul’s City Art Collaboratory, a think tank of artists and scientists in discussion about urban issues.
