“[HYLAEA is] an interactive video and print installation that seeks to bring to life the residues, records, and archives of lost ecological memory.  Part ecological ghost story/part zoological bibliography, this project stems from a desire to partially awaken the resting memories of lost life forms from the extinct species cabinets of the museum and the rare book shelves of the library.   My intention in seeding motion, sound, interaction and macroscopic detail across the library is for viewers to recall that within less than a century of the publication of the first written and painted records of the astounding bird life of North America, both common and mythological species became the icons of human-induced extinctions.” (Tim Weaver, 2010)
