Dec 19th, 2017 : Birds Not Birds

Hey look, birds.

Those arenít birds theyíre metal, bits of tableware and wire.
Anyone can quickly discern they arenít birds but metal, so why was your first thought birds?
These metal sculptures strip birds down to the basic shapes we recognize quickly.
Is it a built in defense system to recognize threats as quickly as possible?

It works for other critters too.

Everything is interesting... look closer.

When I saw that first image, I thought that someone had built a better mouse trap.

I won't be beating a path to his door.

Actually my first thought was praying mantises.
Great work, but feeling snarky this morning makes me wonder why I never realized how many birds have spoon-shaped heads.

I'm trying to make an Angry Birds joke but the thought just won't jell.
