I’ve previously discussed how scientists are interested in pigeons’ ability to perceive art. A New York City artist has taken this to its logical conclusion and created an art installation for pigeons.
The pigeons appear to approve:
Although possibly they are not yet familiar with the standard art museum rule “Don’t knock into the art, even if you are startled.”
Or, hey, maybe pigeon art is more interactive than human art. Who am I to judge?
(This art is by “Mother Pigeon” Tina Piña Trachtenburg. According to her website, she makes this art to encourage humans to appreciate pigeons—but she’s probably just saying that to avoid the scandal of admitting that she bribes her actual target audience with birdseed.)
