“When the nightingale sings, I hear America singing the sounds of Star Wars”

This stack incites examination of popular American Culture in relation to perception and nature. The viewer is left to consider the supposed connection between the nightingale and the pop-culture phenomenon of Star Wars. Absurd as this connection may appear, it carries a heavy metaphorical load in regards to superstardom emphasized in American culture. Those associated with the big screen are deemed superhuman by many standards, calling into question ideas of the natural world and that which exists beyond it.

Location: 3rd Floor Stairwell

On a podium at the entrance to the third floor.

A quiet place of reflection, plain white background, and light blue accent from the book “When the Nightingale Sings” to match the wall.
