One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

A book cover reimagined

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a prototypical 1960s novel with a strong anti-establishment stance that presents an archetypal conflict between freedom and control.​

Scope

The sculpture creates an unnatural organic sculpture from layers of bird feathers. The object has been constructed to form a hybrid creature that curves into an unexpected form: a reference to the narrator "Chief" Bromden.  
Splashes of paint depict the antics of the rebellious character of McMurphy.  

The redesigned cover captivates the viewer but revolts in equal measure - representing a conflict between freedom and control.​
