Inspired by nests I have begun doing paper weaving. After watching the move 'Out of the blue' about David Grey who went on a mass killing spree I felt not only sad for the people who were caught up in it but also David himself. Based on the idea of a nest being a place of safety and hope this broken weave symbolises the break down of the community and society as a whole. The nest failed to protect the egg, out of the hatched a damaged bird which then set out to destroy the nest. Nothing can be said to excuse what Mr Grey did but his actions were (in my opinion) not so 'Out of the blue' as the movie title suggests, instead it is the predictable reality of what can happen when the nest fails to be that place of safety and hope.
Lets hope we are building strong nests in our own homes and towns and protecting all our eggs!
