This morning around 11am, I recorded and uploaded this soft toy composition on the grass from my new phone to Flickr, just to test its capability. The birds were selected from a bigger collection for their different body, beak, wing and feet sizes.
Their names as indicated on their labels are:
Squeeze Me, Russko. Happy Horse and Super Drug.
I have had many ideas about using the birds as an art installation or as an animated cartoon strip.
Interestingly these sort of toys have a short lived existence as childrens toys and their body parts bear little or no resemblance to real birds.
Taxonomy is the science of identifying and naming species and organising them into systems of classification. I think there are possibilities for an art project here.
