Whcih came first: the chicken or the egg? Oology is a three-screen video installation that playfully explores the many forms of gallus gallus domesticus. As eggs are a traditional symbol of fertility and rebirth, Oology is programmed to screen during the phases of the new moon, which is symbolic of new beginnings, a fresh start, and rebirth.
