Stand Still Like The Hummingbird
Artist Aaron Rose’s birdhouse is inspired by Henry Miller’s same-named collection of stories and essays, outlining his unique philosophy on life. “This collection had a very profound effect on me when I first read it as a young person,” Rose says. Rose’s birdhouse is a repurposed vintage suitcase.
