collection of a magpie

A magpie does not steal, it collects. It takes small shiny objects and bring them into the nest.

Wedged between feathers, twigs and dry leaves, it creates a small collection of enchanting failures.

 

A magpie embodies the spirit of the collector.

In its nest, like within a collection, objects replace desires.

To arrange, classify, select, and sort, just like memory exercises.

A space for reconstruction.
