The impact of an asteroid on Earth caused the extinction of many animals. It happened unexpectedly, many were planning their future, family, or career. Only a few fossil nests with intact eggs buried in earthen mounds remained after the dinosaurs. The fragility of the shells can remind us of the vulnerability of life, the extinction that humanity has brought upon itself. However, if we look up and a bird flies over us, we realize that flight is one of the adaptations of dinosaurs that allowed them to survive. Birds are dinosaurs that learned to fly. So, is there hope for humanity? The installation of eight three-meter-high eggs protected by a wall of sandbags creates a space for thinking and discussing the current (sixth) mass extinction.
