liina & pauliina - bird feeders

during my collaboration with nature in TUO TUO art residency this august, I found that our neighbour is keeping a horse. my material research is mainly based on cellulosic materials, so I was super happy when I had a chance to try a horse manure material which is a naturally recycled cellulose.

 

I shaped few abstract objects by hand while trying out the different material combinations: it contains fallen tree branches, pine sap and jute fiber, horse manure, local rowanberries and bird seeds.

 

the project was created in collaboration with nature and for nature - especially for wild birds. I install those objects in a natural environment and continue on my research while exploring how different shapes of objects affect the local bird’s eating habits.

 

these biodegradable objects could be consid- ered as independent things, changing with time, and creating their own story while trans- forming into new hybrid materials and coming back into different layers of the earth.
