ANTHROPODENIAL is a multi channel video of vibrantly colored birds, exotic and domestic, which shows the diversity of birds personae. In the video they are alternately trapped, (staring at the viewer from their caged lives), playfully  coupling with one another, flying or walking. The delicate birds' claws repeat throughout the video as does an oval form, both representing the cycle of movement the birds, an often overlooked part of our wildlife, contribute to our environment

In the slow moving and sensual video,  birds are revisited as powerful and magical creatures. The short immersive video asks the viewer to not only see but feel how they are endowed with more intelligence and offer a greater contribution to our environments than we realize in our daily lives.

ANTHROPDENIAL is installed in the entry hall of Mana Contemporary in Jersey City from March 2017–June 2017.
