The OOZ database examines (collectively and crucially with an open structure of participation) the survival strategies of these geese (and in the future other species) in a hostile world, their complex and rich social structures, their couplings (not only do you observe homosexual bonding in 10% of the population they also have stable lifelong triumvirate homosexual units) and their political models. It does this playfully, directly, experientially, not didactically. This project rescripts the relationship between culture--humans--and nature--the geese. And the script embedded in the project is one that directs people to engage, interact, and consider the meaning of the animal gestures and choices. The OOZ project asserts that this form of engagement is a vast improvement on the other forms of institutionalized animal human interaction. Even the idea that the utterances and gestures of geese could be meaningful is radical for many people.
