Dec. 31, 2019 the innocent actions of several people resulted in a tragic fire at Krefeld Zoo in Germany. The gorilla house caught on fire after being touched by a fire lantern released in celebration of the New Year. Thirty endangered animals tragically died that new year. This piece places the animals in celebration, a bacchanal if you like, in perpetuity. Human actions have consequences far beyond what we often expect. This series explores that theme in this and other works.
