Bright orange berries with yellow husks make Oriental Bittersweet popular for making fall wreaths, using the trailing wines to weave. These orange berries attract many species of birds, which eat the berries and disperse the seeds in the landscape in their droppings. In this installation, Orioles are perched inside a net of woven Oriental Bittersweet “O’s” in front of an enlarged picture of berries.
