The Bird Project (2006 – 2017)

Wheat pasted photographs of birds in scale 1:1.

The american ornithologist  J.J Audubon worked 12 years (1827 – 1838) with a very ambitious book projects: Birds of America. Audubon wanted all the illustrations to be in scale 1:1 wich made it one of the largest books ever made with each page measuring 70 x 100 cm.

As an homage to Audubon I have been putting up thousands of photographs of birds in scale 1:1 – all around the world – in Reykjavik, Casablanca, New York, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Rio De Janeiro, Stockholm, Madrid, Buenos Aires and London.

Just as Audubon I´ve worked with the project for 12 years and will make a book with the same size as Birds of America. The images below show a small selection of the work. The book will be ready in the beginning of 2018.
