This is a small flock of eight bird automatons. Initially this project was designed and carried out for an exhibition at the operational factory. The concept proposed the birds being mysterious alternative forms of extraterrestrial mechanical life. They were so naïve to end up in workshops that bore a resemblance to their home grounds. They were caught up in workshop mechanisms and utility communications, quivered helplessly, trying to fly away. Later on, they succeeded and now, finally free and unbound, they participate in my exhibitions, with the pack or individually.
All the birds have the same mechanical structure and way of communication; still every one of them has its different voice and manner of flying. The pitch of the voice bases on the feedback strategy. The pitch of tone and the tone quality varies as the beak with the microphone changes its location. The birds continually communicate with each other; transmit danger messages or information on spotted metallic objects that they feed on.
