Some pigeons are more equal than others
- Caroline Kurze
Artist Julian Charriere dyed 35 pigeons with a ‘pigeon apparatus’. The machine works as a bird trap with a conveyor belt mechanism, ones inside the machine the pigeon get automatically airbrushed in different colors. The machine was installed for a week on a roof in Copenhagen. Afterwards the colorful birds were released once again to mingle with the other pigeons in the wild. The artist wanted to change the perspective on our daily reality by adding something strange to the picture that you might notice with just a glimpse.
