Birds of Singapore, 2013-2017. 210cm x 150cm. Most of the birds died due to collision with buildings or vehicles. Collected by David Tan @g33k5p34k over a period of 3 years as part of his research. It took me some time to photograph all the carcasses that David has in cold storage. There was so much blood in the carcasses (probably due to collisions) that made the shooting really intense. This is something I am working on for the upcoming Taipei Biennale at 臺北市立美術館 Taipei Fine Arts Museum, curated by Mali Wu. One of the birds still has a grasshopper that it was chasing before it collided into the building. I believe that the sudden increase of speed when chasing prey could be the cause of collision with buildings, especially buildings with glass surfaces. The glass buildings we build are often death traps for birds.
