A photo-essay on the film installation 'Ming of Harlem', written for Antennae: The Journal of Art & Nature. The essay combines images (not documentation) generated during a unique film and photo shoot, whereby a five-room apartment was designed and established in an existing outdoor tiger enclosure at the Isle of Wight Zoo, UK. Most especially the images show how a space is 'laced' to encourage a tiger to roam into shot. The essay describes philosophical, practical and exotic modes of inter-species companionship, considering predation, ingestion and the political imagination.
