Color Pigeons

The Venice Biennale commissioned artists Julian Charrierre and Julius Von Bismarcke to transform pigeons in the city into a more colorful variety.

The lucky birds have been coloured using an extraordinary conveyor-belt mechanism that was first tested in Copenhagen. After landing in a box that looks a little like a CCTV camera, they are pushed through a system where they are (apparently) harmlessly spray-painted and then let out the other side in a strange airbrush metamorphosis.

Prettier to look at but still damn annoying pigeons.
