Feather column belongs to the body of works which play upon the ambiguity of the nature of things and its polysemous potential. Is it an art piece or an artifact ? Is a palm which turned into a feather column and offers a protection against rain or a column which considers itself a serpent and which feathers announce approaching rain ? Also what does it mean that it belongs to Azul Jacinto Marino, a primary color( between green and violet), native to sub-tropical- sub America ? The hue of Azul Jacinto Marino is highly subjective, like the feather column, it depends on the point of view of the observer.
