Bug War Over Two Blue Mountain: Kate Eric

The ambiguous nature of Kate Eric's collaborative creations makes it all the more intriguing. What it is might be a creature but at what stage of development it's in would then be the question. Microscopic or aerial view? Spore, chicken, plant, marshmallow? The duo (Kate Tedman and Eric Siemens), mostly based in San Francisco, though their time is also split between Italy, began collaborating in 2000. Their show Bug War Over Two Blue Mountain will open at San Francisco's Frey Norris Gallery in March 2010.
