Joyce Hsu's Birdie is a playful, origami-inspired sculpture that faces the Baylands Natural Preserve, joyfully reminding visitors of the unique setting and important habitat for migratory birds. A humorous play on words, Birdie spreads its kinetic wings while balancing on a white golf tee.
Joyce Hsu is an interdisciplinary Oakland-based artist working primarily in sculpture, installation and public art. Her art playfully re-invents icons familiar in contemporary culture and art history, with the intention of linking a contemporary site with its over-arching cultural narratives.
