Once Effigy is a short, looped video that shows footage of a brown bear from the Vilas Zoo exhibiting stereotypical behavior against the backdrop of Bear Mound Park, the site of a Late Woodland bear effigy. The work addresses two societal ethics concerning non-human animals, placing traditional narratives from the past and present into critical conversation with each other.
