Amy Switzer: Untitled (Standing Bird), 2008, ceramic, steel and graphite, 15 x 5 x 13 inches
These three standing birds can be placed on the floor near the birds that are mounted on the wall. They have complete bodies; as if they have broken away from the group on the wall. These birds humorously address the notion of pack or group mentality. I enjoy setting up different scenarios (e.g., the distances between them or the direction of their gaze) with the birds.
