If the current science is correct, and this universe started with a big bang, all beings and all matter can trace their atomic structure back to stardust. This truly makes us “one” with the universe and connected to everything we see and experience. We share this planet with many other beings and some of them are social like us. I keep thinking we can all learn from each other. This installation is an attempt to do that and an attempt to honor our feathered friends who seem to know something about how to work together. We all know about the power of many. I want to salute the beauty and grace of each individual birdie and the beauty, power and strength of many working together. What I have noticed in other species is that they mostly seem to work together for the common good. I am trying to capture that instant when an entire flock of birds turns together…sometimes called a murmuration.
This is the fourth incarnation of my Capistrano series. I was captivated as a child by the stories of the swallows of San Juan Capistrano who migrate far and wide and return to those same cliffs every year. I do believe there are some powerful forces at work on this marvelous planet Earth.
