The fox photos are the result of a pseudo-scientific research project about the biology and geography in an industrial waste land. The artist collected garbage from the wasteland to construct the photo trap for observing the foxes he discovered in that area. The animals were allured by a sausage. When the fox bit in the bait, it activated the camera connected by a cord with the sausage. One week later the animals had learned to eat the sausage without being photographed. After the photos where taken, the artist put the elements together in an exhibition space, the photos and the traps but also a part of the wood fence closing of the waste in this way making the wasteland accessible.
