Another batch of Bird on a Wire Houses have hatched. The first pair were grabbed by my three children, and were launched up and over a wire, directly above their Elementary School crossing.

Thanks to Jim and Shawn for the spectacular images of the Birdhouses now hanging in Utah, somewhere near Panguitch. Raphael http://grignani.org/ started a Flickr Group http://www.flickr.com/groups/1075724@N23/ where some of the images and locations of the Bird Houses are now found. A new batch of houses will be out soon, which means an new list. So if you fancy one, and have a good spot in mind. Drop me a line.

Bird on a Wire

with one comment

A Lost project can sometimes gain enough momentum to exist beyond the covers of my sketchbook. This hasn’t happened that often recently. But it seems that the Bird on a Wire Houses have this momentum. To begin with, there are just 12 pairs of houses on their way to Tokyo, Sydney, SanFrancisco, Toronto, Seattle, Builth Wells, Brighton, Helsinki, Buenos Aires, Panguitch Lake & Cardiff. I look forward to seeing where they land.
