Name of Work: For the Birds

Painted marine-grade plywood / 36”w x 12”d x 96”h

About the Work:
For the Birds is a way for us to invite some of the natural world back into the unnatural desert of the city. By offering bird houses, we take a step towards regaining some of the original soundscape of the northeastern area. Using three tall, traditional home shapes with skewed angles, For the Birds commands an unexpected perspective on the image of home.
