Novelty Treats: Zebra Finch Family Band

Look at that little Zebra Finch. With his seed breaking bright orange beak. He's clearly awesome and adorable. Add dozens of other zebra finches to the equation, put them in an aviary with electric guitars and various musical instruments, and you have something so mind- blowingly awesome and delightful that you almost can't stand it.

This is what French artist CĂ©leste Boursier-Mougenot has done for a piece of installation art at the Curve at the Barbicon. The finches fly about and create a wall of strange auditory sensation with every peck, landing, or attempt at six-string nest construction. Innovative and cute. Fantastic!
