    Go Fish with Ted Sabarese

    As I read the Scientific American blog post on Ted Sabarese's project Evolution, I asked Ted to answer Kalliopi's email and give us an insight into his creative process: "With all the recent, fiery controversy between evolution, creationism, intelligent design, science, religion, the political left, right, etc., I thought it might be provocative to throw my visual two-cents into the ring. The images beg the question, “is it really so difficult to believe we came out from the sea millions and millions of years ago? I looked through a bunch of sea life books to find a variety of fish i thought would lead to a visually interesting cast. Once we had the fish, real people casting director Laine Rosenberg found the cast in about 3 weeks. All but one had never before had their picture taken professionally. In New York City there is no shortage of fresh seafood. I originally visited the new Fulton Fish Market, which is only open from 1AM until 7AM. A friend and I arrived right at one and scoured the vast, refrigerated warehouse for hours. When we had finally found the exact fish we wanted, we went to buy them. What we didn't realize is that you can only buy by the case, not singly. The next day, somewhat sleepy and smelling of Amberjack, I ventured back to Chinatown and loaded a cooler with the fish you see in the images."
