The Feather Project is based on the sculptural feather work by Milo Frielinghaus from 2012. In the original feather work Frielinghaus attached a feather in an egg, which travelers brought with him as a souvenir on request.
The Traveling Feather video series takes the feather into new contexts. While traveling and visiting friends and colleagues Lorina Speder records unstaged moments of interaction between them and the feather. The videos become short portraits of the characters involved and also portraits of their surroundings.
Traveling Home Feather
In the time of the Coronavirus pandemic the project continues with the focus on sending out feathers to friends and editing their self shot home videos.
