This print is dedicated to the finches which lost the struggle for existence. Through a special blend of the acrylic color we could transfer the disappearing effect to the paper. Depending on the light incidence the two color-layers fuse to a single surface or the illustrations accentuate and allow the viewer to view the extinct species. Each beak is labeled with the Latin name of the finch to which it belongs. This way, we can each search for traces of the particular bird. Survive and perish.
