“Zugunruhe” is a term for migratory restlessness, the nervous behavior exhibited by birds just before they take off for a long migration. “Zugunruhe” is also the name of artist RACHEL BERWICK’s latest installation piece at the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University, Providence Rhode Island. (November 14-February 14, 2010). Berwick’s work “has focused our attention on human interactions with and understandings of the natural world”. Many of her pieces focus on rare or extinct species like Passenger Pigeons, Tasmanian Tigers and Coelacanths. Tune in tonight and find out about her uniquely fascinating and beautiful work that combines natural history with sculpture and installation, and ultimately examines some of our longest held beliefs about nature.
