The Curious Big World of Jumping Spiders

Natalia Lucero

This is an independent project. 

While studying abroad in Monteverde, Costa Rica, during the 2016 spring semester the artist had the opportunity to conduct an independent research study on the diversity of neotropical montane jumping spiders. While conducting field work on her host family's farm, she began taking videos of the spiders using the Nikon COOLPIX AW130 Waterproof Digital Camera for identification purposes. However, soon after realizing the great quality of the footage and distinctive behaviors shown by the the curious creatures, she began documenting with the purpose of creating a compilation video.
