Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon, died in Cincinnati Zoo in 1914. In the decades before her death, Passenger Pigeons numbered in the billions. These 60 drawings – sketched at my breakfast table over an 18-month period – are animated into a minute of silence, a meditation to mourn the species we have lost and remind us that every act of conservation counts.

This work sits within the Precarious Birds project, and ongoing collaboration with Timo Rissanen. We have written about creating work in response to the extinction crisis, and how designers and artists might contribute to an Archive of Loss at a time of rapidly ecological change.
