“This work was inspired by my research on the Corvid family of birds which include crows, ravens, magpies and jays. They are considered among the brightest of animals and are capable of face recognition, self-awareness and even bargaining with human beings for favor. In this work I combine the omniscient gaze of the crow sitting on a power line with an old pair of Converse sneakers. The shoes have been twisting on the powerline for decades, weathered time capsules and a feeble attempt of the human that tossed them up to claim the crow’s sky.” This artwork ships unframed in a heavy duty tube.
