The Department of Nocturnal Affairs (D.N.A.)
is a creative project by artists Caroline Maxwell and Tal Yizrael.
Envisioned as both a work of installation and performance art, the DNA
has opened field offices in various public spaces around Los Angeles
and the world to collect reports of nocturnal wildlife sightings.

Currently, the DNA is expanding its research into issues such as
light pollution, deviant behavior in nocturnal animals, and the
incarceration and rehabilitation of nocturnal animals.
