Mykolayiv This installation, presented for the 2010 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

site link Thousands of black feathers are suspended to form the shape of a flock of birds.  The structure is illuminated by video imagery of flight.  Sounds of flapping wings amplify and travel within the feather installation; the audio and visual textures permeate a sense of motion.  The ‘driftless’ area is part of the Mississippi ‘flyway’ and is a congregation area for migratory birds.  Driftless contemplates on the current migratory journey to regions surrounding the Gulf of Mexico.
