the light bulb and the bird cage

One winter afternoon I escaped Berlin's cold by going to the Hamburger Bahnhof. At the time the large exhibition hall was hosting works by Joseph Beuys. Contemporary art without Beuys is like brownies without chocolate, it just does not really make as much sense.

One of the pieces displayed in the room was a large, rusted cage. Inspired by Beuys, we began a hunt for an old bird cage. Since then, the bird cage has housed passports, fabric birds and, now, a light bulb.
