Artwork: Nest – Pretoria (2017)
I picked up this nest on a walk somewhere in Pretoria. Nests never cease to amaze me. The beautiful little haven, constructed instinctively according to a perfectly designed blueprint, is nothing short of astounding. In addition, the little family operates according to strict rules which makes it a unit in which the baby birds feel completely safe and secure.
I have interpreted this nest in text. Each letter and word have been typed individually, and the work contains chapters 8-22 of Deuteronomy.
