A nest means security, comfort; one's first home. Just as any home can crumble, some of the Nests are broken: the safety of home -- as it should be -- as opposed to the the realization that "home" is extremely vulnerable. This dichotomy is evinced in the unique prints: the flawless gloss of the black c-paper and the destruction necessary to realize these images.

A note on the process: exposed and developed c-paper is treated with corrosive chemicals, stripping the emulsion down to its components -- the layers of color that make up chromogenic paper. Unfortunately, the etched appearance of the prints, and the additional textures created by the corrosion, cannot be reproduced online.
I am not in complete control of this process.
