Starling in transport crate
Towards the end of the 19th century, enthusiastic New York citizens released great numbers of European songbirds. Some species thrived in the New World, others did not. Most notably, the European starling did exceptionally well, so that many people consider it a pest today.
Starlings In Transport Crates is a series of life-size sculptures illustrating this historic event. The birds are crafted out of molten plastic and litter collected in England and Denmark. They are presented in collapsible transport crates on a concrete base, an allusion to the cityscapes they often populate.
