Owl Caged (2010)

5 min 1 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"The curiosity evident in this owls’s expression may evoke a similar curiosity in the viewer. This reciprocal mirroring thus establishes a basis for an experiential connection. As a metaphor for human perception, 'Owl Caged' alludes to the internal and external constraints that affect how we see and experience the world around us."
