New York-based multidisciplinary collective L.E.FT have created ‘Bird House’, a limited edition piece that comments on the uncertainty of life during times of war. Created from 2500 empty bullet casings that were collected from areas in Lebanon where hunting is prevalent, the project is also a reflection on Kafka’s statement “A cage went in search of a bird”. In the words of the artists:  “Working retroactively from a bird, the birdhouse is a reflection on contextual design. the eames house bird, a staple of eames’ furniture photographs in the 1950s that became synonymous with their household domesticity, is given here a bird house, an ovoid hybrid between a cage and a house.” (designboom)
