Human Head Bird Feeder
Hand built porcelain bird feeder
Sean Connaughty 2008

At a residence in south Minneapolis, The Environmental Protection Agency tested our soil and discovered unacceptable levels of arsenic due to pollution from a 1950s pesticide manufacturer. The soil was removed to a depth of 18 inches, and replaced by clean soil. This project documents the process of removing and replacing the soil. It documents the destroyed ecosystem with plant samples, paintings and prints made from impressions of plants. Several raised rings of stone in the new space are sown with seeds from the destroyed ecosystem. Two apple trees, having survived the soil removal, are the site for bird feeders made of porcelain. The bird feeders hanging from the trees are shaped like a human head and birds eat from the mouth. Each item is handmade and unique.
