A little bird told me
Throughout history, humankind has had a deep and often mystical relationship with birds. They have been seen as innocent companions and foretellers of our future. In this series, this innocence is questioned. The bird in these pieces becomes a symbol of unreliability and mistrust in our society, suggestive of how information can be used against us. We often use sayings like “a word in your ear” or “a little bird told me” whilst relaying a secret or warning to another. In this piece, you are unsure if the relationship or conversation is all that it seems. Is the bird a passive listener or an agent who will misuse the information?
