Nesting Box

The nesting box is a slightly oversized wooden nesting box with a video monitor and a speaker inside. The video monitor shows a man crying. Already from a distance you can hear the soft sound of crying that might also resemble birds’ twittering. The man cries, apparently without ever stopping – even sadder than that Dutch guy who disappeared from a sailing boat.
