This is the art of Ran Hwang, a Korean artist.  The installation, titled "Dreaming for Joy" was exhibited at the Asian Contemporary Art Fair in 2008.

A sharp eyed student (thank you Cathie) forwarded it to me, knowing I'd be enthralled because the bird is created entirely out of buttons......  My jaw dropped and my head is spinning with ideas....though in a way this subject is a bit sad.

I tried to find more info about this artist......but with limited time here's one link that provides a bit more....
