About twelve coyote sculptures are placed in a circle. Each coyote is looking towards the empty center. The circle of coyotes is closed with sheer fabric all around. The viewer cannot go inside and just views the circle from outside the fabric. This work was created based on my personal conception of "America" and inspired by Josef Beuys' 1974 performance "I like America and America likes me", and my actual experience in America.
