Jungles in Paris

Mike Vienneau is a scrimshander, meaning he carves designs onto whale teeth. Said to be the oldest non-indigenous American art form, scrimshaw flourished as a folk practice during the heroic, bloody days of the 19th century whaling industry. Now, with the supply of antique raw materials running out, Vienneau may be one of the last of his ethically convoluted trade.

Jungles in Paris tells stories about nature and culture. We use a range of media to explore planet Earth in all its multi-colored diversity, with a special focus on roots and place. Spotlighting craft, culture, geography and wildlife, we aim to celebrate subjects—human and non-human alike—that are often at risk of extinction in a globalized, growth-driven 21st century.
