2.4 Ghz Homing Pigeons

Part of the Manchester Urban Screen Festival
11-14 October 2007
All Saints Square, Manchester


Based on the original photographic work of Edward Muybridge's study of pigeons in flight, this work utilises Bluetooth technology to build an interactive environment. In this space pedestrians control the number of birds based on the number of enabled mobile devices present within a 100m/300ft range.

The pigeons appear to fly over a virtual Manchester skyline while commuting pedestrians travel beneath.
