100 feeders.

february is here and it is time to talk about my new long term project: 100 feeders.
after Lintujen Ruokintapaikka intervention - I have decided to concentrate on the process of bird feeding and work around it.

to explain this simply: 1) in the following months I will be collecting numerous empty butter boxes to build 100 special bird feeders. 2) I am going to install and exhibit my 100 feeders at the end of may - I will post more details about it soon. 3) during the summer I will complete my project giving away the feeders to 100 people in Helsinki - who will start feeding birds in their own neighborhoods. 4) via postcards I will collect other people's comments and experiences on bird feeding.
documenting the first week of work:

each week I would like to share on Passer Domesticus some documentation of my work in progress - you will know more about 100 feeders by following it week by week!

P.S. many thanks to my friends of the art department and Dipoli student restaurant in Otaniemi for providing me with many butter boxes already - keep on doing it!
