Video + installation (2015)
The Silva Field Guide to Birds of a Parallel Future centers around a series of 18 short 3D animations. The animations mix birdwatching and ornithology with multiverse and quantum theories. Each animation reveals a new dimension, where the birds and their environments oscillate between representation and abstraction. Online version at silvafieldguide.com
