Saw this strange news story on WBZ-4. Artist suspends a metallic flock of birds on cable wires above Cambridge roads. Some express concern that the glare from the artwork will distract drivers. Some on the comment stream of the article are suggesting that cell phones are the most distracting thing — suggestion there would be that what harm could some metallic birds do?
The artist and architecture professor, Carolina Aragon, stresses that she did not want her work to be a distraction. And of course, she does have express permission from the city.
Do you think the installation will cause problems?
Also- if you’re an art nut, you might enjoy perusing her website. Her work is quite good.
