The installation was comprised of plastic nests and other sculptural musical objects that sounded on contact with wind. When touched by the wind, these curious sculptures murmured gently to the backdrop of birdsong. In performance they became instruments, forming a bizarre ritual that both exalted and interfered with nature.
