No Man is an Island
Bell Museum of Natural History (Resident Artist Research Project and Solo Exhibition)­, Minneapolis, MN

Inspired by the writings of Michael Pollan, Richard Holmes, and many others, Peterson is currently interested in how the collection and trade of natural commodities like precious metals, plant-based dyes, spices, fruits, and animal furs have linked nature to the global banking system and interwoven cultures, economies, and ecological systems around the world.
