Bird Machine
Interactive Installation
2006–2009, London / Vienna

Through visitors entering the foyer of the building, a motion detector gives an impulse to the installation. Sound of fluttering emerges and mechanical birds actuate: At the end of about 60 thin wires of different length (from 45cm to 400cm) in each case two feathers start to move up and down. The audience becomes the centre of the event by stimulating the installation and gets an audiovisual response refering to a public square.
