    Jigsaw Puzzle, acrylic boxes, wood, acrylic paint, hot glue, steel pins

    An image of a Ganet bird was made into a jigsaw puzzle then each piece was placed in an acrylic box on a taxidermy pin then onto a wooden frame.  Underneath the boxes, there is the story of Nigel, the loneliest bird.  On Mana Island, concrete decoy Ganets were placed to attract real Ganets back to the island.  One bird arrived and fell in love with one of the decoys.  He didn’t leave the decoy’s side for 5 years, preening it, building a nest in front of it, showing affection to it, until he passed.  The artwork is meant to be viewed from very far away and very close up.  The viewer should use the entirety of the space it is in.

    Item is located in Bloomfield Hills, MI. Local pickup available. Shipping available for an additional fee. Contact aweisbrod@cranbrook.edu for a custom shipping quote.

    Interdisciplinary artist making the familiar unfamiliar to elicit the ineffable states of being in order to feel the connections with each other.
