Supraworld denotes perceiving the world from above and below. A bird`s spirit is the perfect metaphor for freedom and new perspectives in dramatic, speeding up and yet regressive modernity. Birds are throughout human culture prominent as source of food, pets and spiritual symbols. Due excessive industrialization since the 17th century 120–130 wild bird-species have been forever eliminated and hundreds more before ! Right now estimated 1200 more bird species are menaced with extinction due inhuman human activity. Most domesticated birds are raised for meat, eggs and feathers mainly in mechanized, legalized mass-cruelty. Since the industrial revolution we live in an epoch marked by unlimited growth and apocalyptic exploitation, dramatically threatening the ecological balance more then ever before and challenging a more sustainable paradigm shift.
