I live behind the railway tracks of one of the upcoming Cross-rail stations. It undergoes construction everyday. At the front of my house they are building a new 10 acre housing estate. My family are used to having Goldfinches visit us in our garden but they stopped coming a few months ago. I believe that it has something to do with the constant, overriding sounds of jack-hammers and pile drivers. It is a modern day battle between nature and the man-made, a new bird song.
A New Bird Song
This project uses electronics as an interactive element. When you feed the concrete bird you activate construction sounds triggered by reed switches. Process photos:
