“It all began with two porcelain parakeets on the windowsill of the house next door. I got even more intrigued when I noticed that there were days when the parakeets would be looking out of the window, and there were days when they’d be facing the room. I couldn’t figure out what the birds were trying to tell me, my imagination was drawing its own pictures, but one thing was clear to me: the birds belonged to an old lady. Since then every time I was out on the street I would look up and notice more and more windows with budgies in them. Pretty soon I noticed other recurring patterns – skeletons, dogs, comic book characters, and human figures. I began classifying them. These “signs of life” provided very personal information about other people’s lives and the worlds unknown to me.” – Daniel Zakharov
