Ignavus Auspex

2016

Found photography digitally manipulated.

At first glance these images look like ordinary depictions of birds in their natural habitat but on a closer look one notice that the surrounding does not really make any sense. The original images comes from ornithologist websites, its the kind of generic picture used to describe a specific species. I have used algorithms to analyze the image and sample it’s content – creating a larger but artificial landscape.

The title Ignavus Auspex is Latin for lazy birdwatcher.
