Humans seem to be addicted to control. We are getting better and better at it. But there also seems to be an unexpected limit to our control. And the things we’ve been controlling can collapse in an instant. 


A parrot in Holland is an icon of control. This is exaggerated by making it fly after its death. It’s powered by a solar panel. This way it’s surrendered to nature again. Nature decides if it flies or not and al my ingenuity could be in vain. Or it could be a reason to rethink.
