Public Art Installation - Imaginary Singing Birds In Cages

We chanced upon this public art installation while waiting for the doors of the Angel Place Recital Hall to open. It was dusk, but there was a burst of twittering in the air. Most unusual. So we followed our ears round the corner into the alley. This sight greeted us.

Very cool! A range of bird cages, of all shapes and sizes were strung up across the alley way. For the birds, you would have to use your imagination and aided by the audio, you can visualise various types of birds in their cages, singing away to their audience below.

This was a treat. I don't think many installations reach out successfully to the masses, but I think this one certainly did, in its simplicity and with its use of common day objects and with the aid of sound. I give it two thumbs up!
