Up in the air about something

As part of Birmingham’s Fierce Festival in May, Benjamin Verdonck was living in a nest attached to a building. He spent three months building this nest using the crowns of seven adul silver birches, a beech tree, a willow, three bales of straw, 180 pounds of cement, 12 large buckets of glue, and 120 pounds of something else (which unfortunately got torn off the article when I ‘archived’ it). The picture shows this nest…it’s truly stuck to the side second story of this building.

I suppose that’s one way to fix the housing shortage.
