Bird skeletons are often bleached by the elements, becoming fragile objects outlasting their useful function. Bones speak to us. We respond to them viscerally, as subjects or objects, meanings or matter. This gannet skull has an uneasy ambivalence as a symbol fluttering between life and death, serving to warn against behaviours that reduce our bird species to such remains.
