Martha Maxwell's Menagerie illustrates lists of Maxwell’s specimens made by Elliot Coues and Robert Ridgeway to create a nineteenth-century style natural history folio. Combing through existing books and images (a contemporary mediated searching) to find each animal mimics Maxwell’s hunting in the field. The creatures are pasted onto chroma-key green rectangles, a background of cinematic, imagined potential, to highlight their extraction from the environment.
