"For me it was about room for the heart to feel at home with longing...in the poetry and the folds of cloth, the blades of reeds and grass held together in gentleness and stillness...Somehow the experience of it all felt like I was walking inside a poem."

Description:

The Satin Bower Bird of Australia spends most of the year collecting and displaying blue and shiny objects for the purpose of seduction. I'm intrigued. Unexpectedly, my own blue bird dies suddenly. I transform his cage into a place of beauty, covering the floor with the bluest Moroccan tile, and building a nest from my own collection of blue beads, paint, ink and silver jewelry. A river of blood red velvet and white silk pours through the top, and I open the door...
