A look at the Vancouver Olympic Village’s giant sparrows.

The human-versus-nature power reversal explored in the film excites her, and is echoed in this installation. “We have a very kind of romantic relationship to nature and I’m interested in playing with that romantic notion and kind of inverting it, sort of like how the birds attack in the film,” she said recently, standing next to one of her gigantic sparrows. “And the scale of [the installation] has that similar effect, where our relationship to the birds has changed. Because normally when you’re on the plaza, you see little birds and you’re this giant thing. Here it’s the opposite: You’re the small thing in relationship to the giant birds.”
