Small cardboard studies 

These studies brought to an observatory for ornithology, especially for species of birds living next to the rhone. Troglodyte, pouillots, cygnes, plongeons, hérons, fuligule morillon, canards, sterne, martin pêcheur, milan noir...

The space inspired from the discover of the small space under the cornice from week two is compressed and underlines the idea that a hidden space ( from birds ) is often compressed, picked up on oneself.
