Pigeons


Los Angeles, CA / 2012


Venice 6114


Curated by Sergio Bromberg


In an attempt to treat infrastructure as elastic, Homing Pigeons were outfitted to carry Twitter feeds from locations of political upheaval (Egypt, Tunisia, Iran, Russia, U.S.A etc.) to digital traffic control signs on the Los Angeles stretch of the I-10 (Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways). When released the pigeons would carry this latent and invisible data, passing the highway signs on their flights home and displacing the most recent updates, criticisms and attempts to organize into L.A.’s foreign setting.
