Bird on a Wire

Being a fan of animals and a fan of avant-garde/experimental music, I am really digging this…

New commission for The Curve

French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways.  For his installation in The Curve, Boursier-Mougenot creates a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.

Thanks, Jim Tuerk of Greenleaf.

Heard about this from Pharyngula (oddly enough, a science blog)…

UK artist Jonathan Yeo has created a telling post-modern piece…

http://www.jonathanyeo.com/gallery.asp?pid=143 (for detail)

On first glance, it just looks like a painting of GWB.  If you click the detail links, it’s made up of clipping from pornographic magazines (mainly assholes).

Fitting…
