  During the installation of this work I had been determined to place the clay nests on the wall, as I had originally imagined them. But it just didn’t work.(I really did keep trying to make it work!!) I finally allowed myself to listen to both the work, and my friends, whose advice I had asked for and placed all of the nests on the floor.

Somehow it reminds me of a wedding, maybe its the white and the rose another thing you can’t see…
