Dennis OPPENHEIM: Extended Homerange for an Organism. 1968.



Unique work.
Drawing, collage, Lettraset, typed text on paper mounted on cardboard. Signed and dated Nov 1968 by D. Oppenheim in black pencil. 52.4x54.9 cm (20 1/2x21 1/2").
Typed text by D. Oppenheim:
"The dark area divided into quadrants represents the homerange of an organism. Traps were set in the center of each quadrant so that the homerange of the animal could be determined on the basis of quadrants that were occupied. The dotted line represents the boundry of the homerange, and the number within the quadrant represents the number of times the animal was caught in a particular trap. Number 8 is the location of the homesite or center of activity. The scale has been increased 1,000 times, and the homesite relocated near Amarillo, Texas (light green), in an area that showed the highest and lowest temperature difference for Thurs., June 29, 1967. "
