BIRD CAGE · YOKOHAMA TRIENNALE · JAPAN

Nathalie Pozzi


Bird Cage is a 5 meter high cocoon-like cone, constructed from hemp rope and steel, installed in the harbor of Yokohama, during the Yokohama Triennale of Art.

Each day of the exhibition, a “bird” made of balsa wood was flown out the top of the structure, rising up to 10 kilometers on a meteorological balloon. When the balloon burst, the bird glided down slowly, its exact landing point dependent upon prevailing winds. Each bird carried five seeds (rice, wheat, soy, oat and bean), along with a message asking whoever found the bird to plant the seeds.

Responsibilities included on-site coordination and production management, as well as as the documentation of the process.

Subject: I have received the seeds

Hello… My son is 50 years old. My son is working at the Honmoku Pier in Yokohama. He has received the message on 07/Sep/2001 pm 4:00 @ Honnmoku Pier A5 container-yard. He has received the seeds.

Unfortunately I don’t have a land to seed the seeds in my home.
