Winter Wolf and Shadow Wolf at Emerson Dorsch, as Really Large Numbers with Chad Stayrook (photos by Monica McGivern)

Winter Wolf (Canis Lupus Hibernus) and Shadow Wolf (Canis Lupus Umbrus), performance, 2014 

The most notable characteristic of this species pair is their symbiotic relationship: Shadow Wolf is in fact Winter Wolf’s shadow. Although this connection is occasionally tenuous and violent, the Winter Wolf is never without its shadow for more than a few moments at a time. In fact, one cannot survive without the other and Winter Wolf and Shadow Wolf rely on each other for nourishment and companionship.

A performance by Really Large Numbers (Julia Oldham and Chad Stayrook)
