The Bird Project 2006 – 2017

Over a period of twelve years I wheat-pasted 4982 hand cut images of birds in natural scale, in twelve cities around the world. Each bird was placed in a carefully selected location, and subsequently documented by myself. For the duration of this project  I sourced ornithology books in antiquarian bookshops and libraries. Suitable photographs were scanned, edited, reprinted and cut out by hand. Over the years 4982 birds different images of birds were wheat-pasted in twelve cities on five continents: Gothenburg (2006), Berlin (2007), Tel Aviv (2008), Casablanca (2009), New York (2010), Reykjavik (2011), Madrid (2012), Malmö (2013), Rio de Janeiro (2014), Buenos Aires (2015), London (2016) and Stockholm (2017).

The project was inspired by the famous ornithologist John James Audubon (1785-1851).
