Over the geological epochs since their emergence, birds have adapted, refining in form in response to the world around them. Birds thus provide a glimpse into a world that is now lost to time, and now share a very a different world with mankind. And, as part of our world, birds have become ingrained in various cultures as symbols of such themes as life and death. Birds evolved to dominate the land, air and water long before humans appeared, but in our short existence we have taken inspiration from birds and have strived to be more like them, creating machines to emulate their mastery of the landscape. Aves is an attempt to visually capture the landscape of birds.
