Catalan photographer Xavi Bou captures images of the routes that birds take during migration. Via the artists website!
TECHNOLOGY, SCIENCE AND CREATIVITY COMBINE TO CREATE EVOCATIVE IMAGES WHICH SHOW THE SENSUALITY AND BEAUTY OF THE BIRD’S MOVEMENTS AND WHICH ARE, AT THE SAME TIME, CLUES FOR THOSE WISHING TO IDENTIFY OR RECOGNIZE THEM.
In Ornitographies, the skill envied by men, the long lasting shared yearning of flying, is presented to us, extending our visual perception.
Art and science walk hand in hand to create images, which are no longer a single portrait of reality but become a witness of the instants that, for a moment, were past, present and future all at once.
ORNITOGRAPHIES IS A BALANCE BETWEEN ART AND SCIENCE; A NATURE-BASED DISSEMINATION PROJECT AND A VISUAL POETRY EXERCISE BUT ABOVE ALL, AN INVITATION TO PERCEIVE THE WORLD WITH THE SAME CURIOUS AND INNOCENT LOOK OF THE CHILD WE ONCE WERE.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
