Flying Pigeons Turned into Colourful Works of Art
One way to brighten up a city

As part of the Venice Biennale contemporary art festival, artists Julian Charrière and Julius von Bismarck decided to make a unique piece of art using real birds. The artists transformed these dull, gray, ‘flying rats’ into colorful flying art pieces with a bit of non-toxic spray paint.

The project, titled ‘Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others,’ was initially introduced in Copenhagen, Denmark. Charriére and Bismark built a ‘pigeon apparatus’ on a city rooftop; when birds flew into the apparatus, they were trapped and a conveyor-belt mechanism automatically airbrushed the pigeons in an array of vibrant colors. The pigeons were then released back into the city to become flying works of art. No animals were harmed during the process. [PSFK]
