Inspired by a land art piece I created in Upington in 2013, this artwork signifies the way that animals build shelters and nests from twigs and pieces of wood, creating intricate formations that are able to provide protection and warmth. Instead of using a contained, nest-like rectangle or circle, I used an elongated format to reflect the expansive landscape of the area where the land art was created.
