Portents > A Bird At the Window

Installation
My bedroom window covered in marks made by a robin, eggshell blue paint, robin's egg, nest, cat fur

In 2008, a robin flew repeatedly into my bedroom window. I taped various patterns to the window but every day there were more marks. Days later, I found a bird's nest on the ground with a small clump of cat's fur and a piece of twine woven into it. I never saw the robin or its babies again. I removed the window and had it replaced.
