In Whooper Swan, ideas of perception and disillusionment are explored. The beauty and grace

of the Whooper Swan in a still image is broken down by a video piece of the swan's shrill sound

as it feeds and fights amongst ducks and seagulls. This double-take seem to scratch on the edge

of ideas of artistic representation, simultaneously presenting the lures and pitfalls of preconceptions

of images.
