Inverted Bird Blind, Yellow Bird Artscape, Woodbury, Tennessee, USA, 2017

Inverted Bird Blind is a box made of salvaged timber, placed in the rural landscape of central Tennessee. A slit in one of the sides reveals paintings of seventy-two species of bird, recorded by the artist on the 175 acres of Yellow Bird Artscape. In a traditional bird blind the observer's gaze is directed outward; Inverted Bird Blind directs the gaze inward. Rather than enabling close range observation of wild birds, Inverted Bird Blind enables scrutinization of the birdwatcher's mind.
