Scott Kinney’s soccer ball — ahem, football — animals are strange hybrids. Glossy colored smooth synthetic (and branded) skins are stretched over a taxidermy model, forming a highly geometric pattern that defies all laws of natural order. No such animal lives in the woods. A symbol of European favorite past time covers a rifle-sniping, camo-donning pride of an American woodsman. The result is rather menacing, as expressed by the sharp, definitely carnivorous teeth protruding from the mouth of these animals. Blinded and frozen in time, they must be a new type of intriguing zombies.
