Birds are like humans, and people are like birds. They are smart and stupid. They are nice and ugly. They are full and hungry. They are delicate and predatory. somethey are singing others are shouting. People like birds can fly. Birds are flying to warm countries. People fly away in their own thoughts.
Birds have always accompanied man. They were often described in literature. Some were positively perceived others negatively. Man made a symbol from the bird. Some birds they are a symbol of good, others a symbol of evil. People evaluate birds based on its appearance. Dark ravens are seen as death, bright pigeons like life. I wonder how birds perceive man? Are birds also full of prejudices regarding the appearance human? Maybe I’m angry? Because I’m black, like a crow. The project asks a question why? Why a man surrenders to influences and so easily tell him that he is white good and black is bad. As if the world was divided into two groups, only the good ones and only those bad ones.
