The installation, Twice : Migration, refers to the visual phenomenon of groups of birds moving as one in flight and to various scientific and literary descriptions of the biannual movement of birds in migration. The felt birds are embroidered with words taken from a chapter on these movements in Arthur J. Thompson's The Biology of Birds published in 1923.
