“Much like Alice of Wonderland fame, who had seen a cat without a smile but never a smile without a cat, I have imagined bodies without senses, but never senses without a body. Juan Carlos Zaldivar’s installation Shifting Nature, however, asked me to do exactly that.”

-Rachel Luria, PhD Media Philosophy, Florida Atlantic University, Shifting Nature Catalogue
