What Should We Do? 

What Should We Do is an installation comprised of 32 hollow, life-sized, cast-paper humans, huddled over live sod on which there are twelve handmade, mechanized, flailing birds. The birds are battery powered, allowing the dying batteries to slow down the flailing, making the birds themselves appear to die as the batteries die. Gallery visitors become part of the helpless crowd of sculptures as they hover over the dying birds, speaking to societal dysfunction, environmental neglect and destruction, group-think, and the sense of hopelessness that leads to collective inaction.
