100 swallows project


. finally I managed to edit and upload the 100 swallows project I mentioned a while back . you can see it on my webpage  .
.....................................................................................................................................
. finalmente coloquei no meu site o projecto das 100 andorinhas de que tinha falado há tempos . podem ver aqui .

in spring 2011 one hundred porcelain swallows were left in the local park . each one had a number written under the wing . a photographic record was made of each single swallow on the exact spot where they were left to their own destiny . people would pick them and take them . all were taken . a few I know of their new home . but for most it remains a mystery.

I love the idea! I once wanted to do it with penguins and spread them in town, but I had no way to properly make them.

It must've been so fun to work on it!!
