This work is the first part of an installation that takes place in two continents at two different times. Namely, Australia and Europe and in that order.
It was born on the preceding days to another birthday in which I sought to be mindful of the key moments, even brief lapses of time in every single day that were meaningful to my life and represent it with a bird.
It was paramount for this project to resist the impulse of perfecting anything. Each one of the 31 birds is 'perfect' in their own right and difference was welcome as a natural element of life's own unpredictability.
By the end of the month, thirty one birds had been born out of inspiration. Now the second part is on its way.
