Nature House Inc

Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 6:12 | Royaume-Uni | 2013

A short film which centres upon the proliferation of bird houses, erected to attract the Purple Martin - `America`s Most Wanted Bird`. The extraordinary abundance of man-made habitats reflects a desire to live in close proximity to nature, in a suburban, small town setting. Over one million North Americans have installed Purple Martin bird houses. The migratory birds, which are believed to consume large quantities of insects, are now entirely dependent upon man-made housing during their breeding season.
