A Report on Pigeon Aerial Photography

February 5-6, 2003
Multnomah County Public Library, Portland, OR.

This performance discusses the history of aerial photography and documents my experiments with pigeon aerial photography.

I raise pigeons and am building small cameras that they can use to take photos. I have used APS film cameras and small digital cameras along with custom timing circuits and harnesses. The preliminary results are promising.

I performed the work in progress at Performance Works Northwest in November 2002 and at the Multnomah County Public Library Central Branch on February 5-6 2003.
