In "The Thing With Feathers," Svendsen presents a surreal and timely exploration of the elusive concept of HOPE. Through the metaphor of balloons, Svendsen contemplates the multifarious meanings of, sources for, and purposes of HOPE, as she celebrates and mourns its utility as a binding force in humanity and nature.
