Carbon forms.

All the images are made from shadows cast by small sculptures of birds.
They are stencilled on any surface using charcoal dust, sizes are variable.



Bird extinction stories across the globe ( Amsterdam Island duck Anas marecula )

I have compiled a chart of  the recent known extinct species of birds.  (Will upload the chart at a later time).

The chart shows that a number of extinct bird species have no visual documentation.
This provides me with an opportunity to guess how these birds may have looked, as well as to match already produced small sculptures to extinct birds.

This exercise is a “mad” attempt to understand and draw attention to how fast the world has changed and is continuing to change.

For a complete listing of “specimens” please have a look at my website


The first image for this list is: Amsterdam Island duck Anas marecula
