Like other parrot owners, I really want my African grey parrot, named Beuys to say what I want her to do. But Beuys has her own freedom. Under the rules, she is still the political being that I can say what she thinks and creates her own sentences by rearranging everyday words. Somebody said that "Everyone is a contemporary artist".

Therefore, I realise the absolute freedom of the being, it does not depend on the ability to act or not to act but it is the ability to say the unsayable. "
