Nestor le jardin Loupe
*Loupe, or burl in English refers to the knotty, gnarly growths on

​​tree trunks.
2014 Lausanne Jardins.
 Switzerland June 14 - October 11, 2014

​​Designed in collaboration with Aurey Deslis and Charles Goyard.

Inspired by burl, this garden is a sort of bed and breakfast for urban birds; intended to reveal the subtleties of our eco-system at work without being intrusive. A suspended garden with sound in motion was designed for bird consumption: a variety of local seed and berry plants and insects accompany solar powered, interactive birdhouses that indicate habitation with a red light.

Merhaba

2001 Inspired by the awnings of local triporteurs in Marrakech, these bird houses were designed for riad gardens.

Artificial Limb (prototype)

2010
​In response to man's desire to continually "modify" or tamper with the urban landscape a prosthetic tree limb was designed to replace a limb that had been pruned on a Wych Elm in Bedford Square, London.

​ The artificial limb also serves as a lodging for birds.

Perch

2013 Tel Aviv University Gallery:
Anti-Anti, curated by Hadas Kedar 

Perch is an experimental installation:
a micro-environment providing urban birds a place to rest and feed.

Birds have the option to build a loose nest in the cavity of the sculpture.

There is an observation point inside the gallery where one may observe bird activity through binoculars.

Observations: the cavity appealed to a Kingfisher, although no nest was constructed. Sparrows and Bulbuls used the perch during the cooler

evening hours.
