This is one of my two 2011 Art Grows Here installations, "Perfect Fairytale". It was inspired by the scene in Cinderella where the birds make her dress. (More info in my previous post.) I made it from over a years-worth of True Value birdseed bags. The idea was born from the question about what happens to these bags after I throw them away. The birdhouses (made for me by my father and painted by me), were included in the installation along with the birdbath and small portions of birdseed scattered around to produce bird activity. This has created a magical environment with plenty of birdsong and flying back and forth which was what I had hoped for!
