Perfect for the wintertime, Alicia Merz’ Birds of Passage project comes from another world, separate from our own. This is an world similar to ours, but everything is just slightly off. A constant overcast sky, filled with birds drifting through these skies leaving long trails of gold and blue ribbons. It’s a fantastic and ethereal plane.

Recontextualizing the past into fragments of an alternate plane… trash, 20th century garbage dump. of shimmering gold, sacred.
