Bird Park, multi-species research project 2017-18
video above is an excerpt from the Bird Park.
Bird Park is an on-going artwork and research project, a collaboration between Julie Andreyev and local birds, including the crow family whose territory includes Andreyev’s home. The Park is a field station on Andreyev’s roof that provides affordances—water, small amounts of food, caching and perching features—to birds in exchange for recording their activities. Birds visiting the Park activate a computer vision system that records their actions as video and sound. The goal is to learn about their communities, cultures and communications, and to find ways to reciprocally engage through interspecies creativity.
