Human Nests

I remember the good old days when making a nest of blankets on the floor to sleep in was perfectly normal(okay maybe only to me), but now that we're grown nesting is seen as abnormal. I think it would be totally fabulous to live in a nest, or at least nap in one!

So imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this fabulous artist and his naturally shaped nests. Patrick Dougherty does some really amazing work. His installations are evocative of nests and trees, looking more like shelters made by animals or formed by nature rather than by a sculptor.

Here are some of my favorite pictures!
