Just came across this really nice video on the digital media blog. This is so simple, yet an effective piece of work. I wish I could have gone to see this. What I like about it is if you went every day, the experience would be slightly different each time.

Trained as a musician and composer, French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways. His installation for The Curve will take the form of a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other instruments and objects. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.
