Temptation & Deceit

Nicole Coman's avatar Nicole Coman

Temptation and Deceit is an installation piece that will consist of the main focal point, the seed covered snake, and the supporting pieces of a bed of seeds, plants, and a bird. The snake would be placed on the ground with a bed of seeds and plants surrounding it so that it blends in with its surroundings, lying in wait. Enter the bird, sitting in the safety of its comfy little nest longing for adventure and more than the occasional worm. She looks down and notices a trail of seeds leading to the tree. Starting to get thicker as it leads off into the distance, it is enticing her to follow along to the source. Unfortunately, this little birdie will find more than she expected as the snake waits patiently for its prey, camouflaged by the seeds it has so cleverly covered itself in. The seeds are a material manifestation of wants, dreams, and riches the bird is after. In the end, it is the temptation of following something too good to be true and finding out that it usually is.
