100 Feeders.

Monday, July 22, 2013

Two years ago, when I moved from Bushwick - where sixteen-wheelers outnumbered trees and my closest neighbor was a Boar's Head plant - to Williamsburg, the first thing I noticed was the sound of birds. Waking up to their happy strains reminded me of childhood, made me feel at home. It makes sense then, that I'd be drawn to 100 Feeders, a project by Helsinki-based artist Polly Balitro, who built 100 feeders, gave them away, and asked each recipient to share his or her thoughts on the experience of using them. Beautiful. 


See more at Balitro's website, here. Thanks, Mayonaka, for the introduction.

Love this. I love to wake up hearing birds' chirping, too.

This totally makes me want a bird feeder. We pretty much only have pigeons in Vegas, but when I move up north, I'm going to put one on my patio (or balcony or whatever outdoor space I end up with).

I love this. What a beautiful and thoughtful way to connect with people (and birds)!

Brianna, there's a man on my block who feeds the pigeons every morning - it's a bit of a nuisance, actually, but very sweet :)

I have become totally addicted to my birds, their feeders and their birdbaths. We've had 25 species visit our yard since I started feeding them two years ago and I love learning about all their quirky birdy personalities and habits.
