This installation is pretty great. We love how menacing the swans appear in their surrounding environment. From Creative Boom:
Although swans might seem harmless and naive, there is a clear sense of irony with Barotti’s installation, with the satellites representing our wasteful society and the power of mainstream television and mass media.
As he explains: “This image provokes both a sense of revulsion and an intimate feeling of familiarity, serving as a hack of the natural environment while challenging the audience with its amalgamation of tech waste and wildlife. The omnipresent hand of humanity is unmistakable in its role as a kind of god in the same way that humanity relates to nature.”
