Benjamin Verdonck is living in a giant nest hanging from a high-rise building in Rotterdam. The Belgian man says he will be there until May 22nd.

Judging by the images in the gallery, the nest looks like it was made out of twigs as well as more resistant and durable materials.

Benjamin built this temporary home on the side of the Weena Tower for a four-day project in which he will not leave the nest. From his perch up above the city, he'll be able to watch people go about their daily lives below him as he envisions life as a bird, even going so far as to dress like one.

This isn't the first time he's done it. In July 2007, he constructed a similar nest on the side of an office building in Brussels were he lived for five days. At one point, he even tossed a giant egg down to the street below him. He called the installation "The Giant Swallow."
