I like this moment when the birds lay down to sleep. They fall on the trees, as a black, sticky, shouting rain … They shiver and push each other in search of a better place to stay.
Once in the park, a loud shot picked them up from a sleepy shuffle, forcing them to panic, helpless escape. Fear, anxiety, breaking out of safety… A multiplicity picture of scared birds is a metaphor for human fears – both individual and collective, in the face of danger.
