Nest is a black, circular piece that evokes the dark side of nesting. The zip ties create a spiky texture throughout the piece and refer to the found plastic that birds increasingly use for their nest building materials. The artist makes feathers from fused and sewn recycled plastic bags that are screen printed with images of endangered birds and overprinted with text in endangered indigenous languages.
Medium: Screen printing on fused plastic bags, sewing, black plastic zip ties, paint
