Guy Nelson (b. 1977, Fargo, ND)
I am interested in anthropological and natural structures that examine conflicts, continuation, and acts of survival. I explore the aposematic phenomena of warning coloration, mutualism, mimicry, self-preservation, genetically modified organisms, and decomposition. My material choices are specifically selected natural elements and polymers.
Education: Bachelors of Art Sculpture, Minnesota State University Moorhead, 1995-2000. Bachelors of Art Photography, Minnesota State University Moorhead, 1995-2000.
