Time based piece in which ten sugar birds were cast around ten soldiering irons. The irons were connected to a timer which turned the irons on, melting the sugar. Each bird fell to the ground, causing it to shatter.

The rendering was a copy of Sarahtropolis, and the intent was to route the city in wood. Aluminum would then be cast into and through the wooden the city, via various molding techniques.
