The Colorful Pigeons of Venice

"Some Pigeons are More Equal Than Others" is the title of the latest collaboration between Swiss artist Julian Charrière, and German photographer Julius von Bismark during the 2012 Venice biennale. The duo dyed city pigeons bright shades of green, blue, yellow and purple, in an effort to change people's negative perception of them. Without harming the birds, Charriere and Bismarck painted the feathered critters using a bird trap with a conveyor belt mechanism where the pigeons get automatically airbrushed in different colours.
