The Monkeys See, Hear and Speak of Evil installation was first created in the backdrop of the ag-gag laws.  Now in the Post Snowden climate era, the monkeys have come out again and have much to say. 

With my re-do of the Nine-headed Bird of the ancient Chinese mythology, the bird heads could not wait their turn to eat, and instead fought each other causing a frenzy and leaving them all hungry –  a metaphor for individual greed at whatever costs.
