The Paleontology of Chris Wildrick Is Overrated: Skin & Bones III, interactive performance, 2010. Performed in a kindergarten class, and exhibited at the Museum of the Earth, Ithaca, NY.
This project follows in the footsteps of Skin & Bones I and II and Dinosaur Duo as a project that asks the participants to directly attempt to recreate/decorate a dinosaur's exterior. In this instance, the participants painted classic wooden dinosaur skeletons.
This project has only been done once with a relatively small group, and it is structurally more abstract than its predecessors, so it produced somewhat less of a clear statement about the relationship between the participants and their dinosaur imagery. However, it was an interesting experiment for its mixture of two- and three-dimensional media.
All the dinosaurs can be seen in this video (3'51"):
