Crash & Burrow 2010
Bell 206 helicopter salvage, paint, hay, water bottles, live rabbits.
25 x 7 x 9 feet

This piece was made with helicopter parts sourced from a company that salvages and repurposes actual crash wreckage into convincing aircraft facsimiles for use in film stunts and scene explosions. My proposal was to turn the crash site into an environment for rabbits that would burrow and form a hutch through the idiosyncratic spaces within the cockpit.
