With Time

Water dropping onto my nest
Revealing my shell, shaping the rest
A solid form built drip by drip
Quick! Catch this moment... now let it slip


With birdsnest, I aim to create a space that’s both public and private. By mixing technological and organic visual metaphors, tension coexists with comfort. Throughout my performance, viewers will be confronted by the nature of my actions. They will at first appear deconstructive as I continuously take yarn out of the bundle. However, the spiritual quality of my physical presence and the meditativeness in the careful handling of each individual string might suggest that my actions are more constructive in nature. By exploring the juxtaposition of opposing elements and experiencing unexpected sensory feedback, each individual will eventually form their own notions regarding comfort. birdsnest’s sculptural form will serve as evidence of the ephemeral nature of the unique interactions experienced by each person regardless of its location or the number of participants.
