Description
Throughout the 19th century, scientists transformed living birds into dried, stuffed, and otherwise preserved scientific specimens. Today, scientists seek to transform these lifeless specimens into living birds through the emerging science of de-extinction. Exploring these transformations, Archives of Extinction evokes questions about de-animating and re-animating forms of life and about the human role in disassembling past and reassembling future ecologies.
