(2010) Nidus Vitreo

Nidus Vitreo (Glass Nest) is an outcome of a long examination of our need to be sheltered in a moment in history where our sense of home has been shifted by the insecurities brought by ethnic wars, migrations, political divisions but mostly, the state of fragility of our environment.  It started with a photograph of a small bird that in the process of building its nest crashed towards its own image reflected on a glass window, perhaps a suicidal bird. It was a search for an essence – a primitive and powerful beginning where the sense of smell is present with its connection to memory. The installation is a large and yet, intimate construction of 1000 branches sculpted with the strength of avian architecture and molded in the fragility of glass resin. The construction takes approximately 160 sq ft floor space covered with a mirrored film skin. The sound & the projected texts from a smell/memory/blog are manipulated algorithmically through a randomized live computer program and sequence and time are never repeated.

SMELL OF NEST / CHEIRO DE NINHO

The accord NEST brings solace, nurture, and protection that man so desires. Fresh, transparent, and pleasant notes that hold and clothe us, bring us security, and, at the same time, reveal human fragility and our desperate need to feel protected. (from Nidus Vitreo catalog, Givaudan do Brasil)
