Project Overview

Birding the Future is an interdisciplinary art project that explores current extinction rates by specifically focusing on the warning abilities of birds. The installation invites visitors to listen to endangered and extinct bird calls and to view visionary avian landscapes through stereographs, sculpture and video. This ongoing project explores how declining bird populations signal profound changes over our entire planet.
