A brief reflection on the curation of nature for the purposes of leisure and the many conflicting perspectives of the spectator curator. All That is Wild is a short correspondence film to a dear friend for which I shared a trip to Portland Oregon and, mistakenly, the state zoo. We walked through hardly a voicing a word until reaching the polar bear exhibit. A crowd was pressed against the glass which had a note taped from the opposite side. “The zookeeper has extended her free time within the exhibit as a result of the recent loss of her sister Tasul”. This is a film for Tasul and is a combination of material photographed during the trip and found footage from my home province of British Columbia.
