For The Birds

One display at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition which I showed you yesterday consisted of a long sentence running along the ground. Unfortunately the piece was made of a mixture of honey and bird seed and as soon as the sun hit it, there was meltdown. The pigeons spent the rest of the weekend enjoying themselves and the message was lost!

Seagulls around here would have 'taken it down' in 1/2 the time. Enjoy while you have it.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

too cute!

Surely they must have known that would happen. When I put seed blocks in my yard I feel like every bird in the neighborhood arrives to chow down.

Hopefully that was the intent of the artist, for artists are a strange lot to begin with.

I had seen this but didn't realize it had bird seed. None around when I was there.

Don't show this to Rob Ford. He might hire them to clean up the city. :)

I'm laughing at Andy's comment.

The pigeons must have appreciated that!

Good cake they put pigeons;)

This was probably the artist's intention. Something about the impermanence of art and it being more important to feed wildlife.

I bet the pigeons thought it was a very good idea! :-)
