Dialogue Awareness Activism

BIRDLINK is an interactive native-plant sculpture, designed to support urban birds and engage community.  This spiraling green-wall grid is a living tapestry of native plants. Multiple BIRDLINK installations will be designed to create a network to link isolated patches of natural bird habitat regionally and promote awareness of species that share our space. BIRDLINK are public art installations that engage communities and address global climate change locally.

BIRDLINK is a rest stop for birds migrating through the city to summer/winter destinations. A freestanding green-wall of native plants, with windows framing a park on one side and a bustling urban intersection on the other, it sits on top of pavement, without support from neighboring walls. The spiraling grid of wire is filled with rubble and soil and native plants specific to both local and migratory birds. The Parks department states that plants are the greatest deterrent to defacement of public sculpture.
