Bird Park



Bird Park is part of a research project exploring the potential for interspecies making, with free-living birds, to produce symbiotic sonic and visual forms. The research involves a situated field station in Vancouver, the Bird Park, that collects visual, sonic, gestural, and social data from birds visiting the station. The goal is to learn about their communities, cultures and communications, and find ways to reciprocally engage through cross-cultural forms, such as sound-making. The Bird Park, provides local birds with water, small amounts of food, caching and perching features. It is monitored by a remote computer vision system that captures activities enacted by birds in the Park. (See image and video above).
