London Fieldworks Builds Birdhouse Cities

September 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Bird houses by London Fieldworks for London’s Secret Garden Project.

The Secret Garden Project is a new programme of temporary commissions and pop up art events by young and established artists that will create a trail of London’s secret gardens, lesser known green spaces, and urban corners. The project aims to bring high quality art projects and events to London’s public realm; raise awareness of the ecological and cultural value of urban green space; encourage an understanding and engagement with ecology and biodiversity, create opportunities for community engagement and collaboration and encourage innovation.

The Unbearable Lightness by Slovakian-born Tomáš Libertiny is a large figure covered in honeycomb produced “naturally” by a swarm of 40,000 bees. This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in awhile. (via beautiful decay)
