Birds who play guitars
This is the best thing I've seen on the internet this week. Oh, how I'd love to attend this exhibition in London.
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot has created an installation in The Curve at the Barbican - a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape. If this isn't rock n roll art, I don't know what is.
