A morning at the Santa Barbara zoo reveals some interesting frames and reframes.
Donors to the zoo are “Foster Feeders”, a more nurturing and sustaining view of how cash ends up as food.
Adding a card to a parking meter is an attempt to present the payment-for-service device as a donation opportunity. It’s a bit of a leap and maybe not the right connotation for the zoo’s purposes.
You could pay to ride with a plastic giraffe, or you could gaze upon a real one.
Even the benches are up for sponsorship. Here’s a plaque-hole which may simply be a lack of maintenance but gently offers the possibility of Your Name Here.
On display at a new exhibit: Man.
Cockroaches made all the more frightening when a puppeteer-like hand enters the frame to flip them over, pluck out the dead ones, and drop off some food.
Everyone gets the chance to be a zoo animal!
