Céleste Boursier-Mougenot—The Birds

I took the time today to today to head out to the Barbican to see Celeste Boursier-Mougenot’s latest creation involving 100 hundred tiny little zebra finches. The exhibition was bloody amazing and despite the excessive queues, one of the best art installations I’ve ever been to. Completely enveloping and escapist, these tiny little creature create music right in front of you—the highlight being when a couple of the little guys tried to undo my shoe laces to use as nest building materials.

It’s only on for one more day (till 23rd May 2010) so if you can get down to the Barbican today to enjoy it yourself.
