bits, pieces, and a nest

Here is an interesting collage piece by Kate Rivers. It's rather large and it is made of paper scraps plus pieces of books – all from her own life. She discusses how the nest is a metaphor for home, which she has lost due to her frequent moves as an adult.

I can't fully explain what it is that attracted me to this. I like the texture. I like the use and re-use of items that would be mere trash independent from each other. I like the concept of "nest" and "home."
