Nest Project

Fieldwork Facility

The Nest project is a lovely urban intervention by Fieldwork Facility for city dwellers to encourage birds to nest in their neighbourhoods.

The nests start life in the home, school or office. Participants make the nest ready by working in pencil for a week — each time you sharpen you’re pencil your making more of a home for the incoming birds. Participants then install their nest in the environment and add to a public database.

The CSPD (Calgary Society for Persons with Disabilities) is a not for profit organization that provides individualized residential services to persons with disabilities. Placing a single staple in the centre of their annual report creates a simple, yet incredibly powerful metaphor for the struggle that people with disabilities face every day of their lives.
