Lark Descending, 2019

Lark Descending (2019).  Human presence triggers a motion sensor which starts the song of the Skylark and the physical decent of the iron replica suspended, mid air, by a magnet until the song fades giving way to the rev of a tractor. 

The graph on the rusty back board shows the decline in Skylark numbers in the UK since 1967. 

Wild life is in drastic decline and heading toward extinction.
