Emu feathers, wasp nests, freeze-dried sparrows, owl vomit: Such creepy-icky materials are the underpinnings of the work in the Museum of Arts and Design’s “Dead or Alive” show, opening April 27 and devoted to projects made of flora and fauna in various states of dormancy and decay. We asked nine of the artists to talk about their approaches and their unusual ways of obtaining and preparing art supplies. Hint: You don’t want to live next door to their studios.
