The artist states, "I was coming home from shooting for the TRACKING series at sunset on the New Jersey Transit commuter train from New York to Trenton. I was hoping to miss a predicted blizzard, when the train stopped outside of Elizabeth. It stayed stopped for hours. The intercom squawked – "unavoidable", "sorry", "police activity" –and the blizzard began. Hours later another train pulled up and we were released. Around 10 pm, weary and hungry, I approached my car on a top floor of the station parking garage and spotted what seemed like thousands of black birds with glowing white eyes roosting in a tree so close I could touch them. Thick snow was falling and the night was lit by vari-colored safety lamps and street lights." Everything happens for a reason.
