Portland, Ore., Aug. 2012: Alison Hallett's piece, "Gato, With Surprise Face And Supplementary Textures" examines the formative and emotional roles of wonder, wood, wire, and fur in contemporary life, from a political ethos driven by "ambiguity" and "disorder" to the aesthetics of safety and assault.

Indeed, Alison shows us, he can.
