Heap of Birds' use of language in his work adopts the idea of mass communication to deliver his observations of social history. Exhibitions for Heap of Birds include: Walker Art Center (MN), Whitney Museum, National American Indian Museum & MOMA (NY), San Jose Museum of Art (CA) & Contemporary Art Museum (TX).
