"Pillaged Nest (One For Sorrow)" consists of two parts: A silent animation, in a continuous loop with no beginning or end, in which one sees a magpie raiding a Pigeon nest and a bell jar with the remains of a looted Pigeon nest.

The subtitle (One For Sorrow) refers to a nursery rhyme from the late 1700s - By counting the number of Magpies one could predict the future. The Magpie also has been used as a symbol of sickness, sorrow and misery in old folklore.
