Inspired by Alan Lightman's book Einstein's Dreams, The Bird of Time is re-interpreted into a storybook with a short animation packaged as a set.
In this world, time is manifested in a nightingale. Should one trap one beneath a bell jar, time stops, and one holds the power to dwell in the captured moment, but only do they realize the dark truth that only comes with these wishes and desires to stop time and live within the past.
