Attached to a roof beam at an art center, an object resembling a plate appeared elusive. After observing it for a long while, I found it really performed a function – catching the bird droppings fallen from the nest above, filled with starving chicks. Site-specific to this level, superb. Couldn’t help myself, I had to respond. The so-called alien suddenly appeared next to the nest, engaging in a seemingly absurd task – observing bird droppings defined its duty and identity. The sparrow parents carefully communicated with it, and then neglected and took use of it after a period of time. The scenario was devoid of the human beings, who as a third person watched, comprehended, and scrutinized the subtle relationships reflected onto themselves.
