About this creation
THE LINK's:

2011 MIT
Derek Berdine's Page

I wrote about some lines of text here, but it took too long and i had to re-login to my account and all the work was gone -.-
(btw does anyone know how much time you have?)

A short summary of the text:

I think Christo has some great Ideas and Concepts, but art has something to do with skill and not just with the idea (this is my oppinion, tell me if you dont think so!). So I wasnt happy with just wraping up something and I wanted to do somethink extra. I first wraped a part of the branch in the style of Christo's work. I did it with yellow pieces, because I think it works perfectly with the fall colours of the leaves. Then I added the bird, to breake the abstract design and bring something which actually fits in the environment. Also, the bird brings a certain life in the withering tree.

I hope you like the creation :-)




























Thanks for looking, ratings and comments are much appreciated :-)

i like how you used the yellow bricks to make a base for the bird. If you could, i would like to see a picture or two for the bird on the ground or at a bird feeder. maybe eating a worm? Its your call.

Wow! Just to be funny, I'll give you the fifth out of three votes. I give you my (possibly worthless) vote!

I love that you actually built this around the branch. That bird takes the cake, though. Great work!

LOL, you are indeed the first to receive 4 out of 3 votes. I guess Mario man liked it so much he felt it deserved another vote! It's definitely cool and worthy of your ticket to the next round. Good luck!~H

I bet the bird would be hard to spot unless you point it out in the tree. Very good!

Wow! I really wish life could have slowed down a bit over the last couple of weeks...maybe I could have gone a bit further with my build. This is really great, Raphael. I love the yellow branch wrap and your bird is top notch! Good luck! :)
