Work That Dogs and Children Like

From what I can read of my notes on the Mark Dion Lecture a few days ago.
(the room was pitch black so I'll need some time to piece them together):

His interest is in how nature is represented, not necessarily the nature itself.
Obsessive categorization preserving.
Orthodox taxonomy
Process of elimination
Performance, is art about content?
Different places
History of the representation of nature
Biodiversity- a popular conversation
Encroaching table
Entomological methodology
Removed photographed
Linden tree bug hunt
Beuys shadowing methodology
Venice barges
Mud dumps
Curiosity cabinet to enlightenment museum
Treasure tro toe tocuca
Distancing from culture- putting it together
Works with significant and disturbed archeologists are interested in context
1 down 7 to go
Bear baiting?
Refining or classification
Until we had a pretty good idea of what we had
Constantly changing system of organization impossible to Identify
Work that dogs and children like
Moss lichens
Revival of the museum an institution info us knowledge
The Boa Orion
Forest ecosystem layers of old forest
Nursling log, generates new generation of plants
Seattle Park
Takes as long to break down as it does to grow, 150 yrs
