Aviaries: Both Aviaries and the series Harpies are an expression of “natures revenge” and inescapable human hubris. There is an architecture made to contain nature, in a sense to bring us closer to nature, but it is exploded and degraded. The human and historical elements are too apparent to ever allow us to know the nature it contains.. Human art believed itself for so long to be a reflection of nature and perfection, with good examples being the Rococo and the Gothic, but in fact these vernaculars are so far from the merciless, asymetrical forces of the Universe, which in its essence is vast and unknowable.
