Spontaneous City: Bird House Metropolis in London

London Fieldwork’s “Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven” – built of custom made birdhouses in two separate public green spaces – is truly a work of art. What does it say to you? Does it reflect the sprawling reach of humanity? It’s almost Dali-like in its entirety. At first, it looks like a 3-D simulation or altered photograph.Yet the houses are bespoke to reflect the architecture of the area and blend in with the neighborhood – and they do. The reach of this art is branching out — this project has been commissioned for installation in more parks and gardens across London. And it isn’t just fantastic art that suits its environment – it’s totally functional and the birds love it. The concept actually developed from a previous project that sounds somewhat more fanciful: animal homes constructed to look like despot’s palaces. But it is Spontaneous City that is truly the feather in their cap.
