And Now, With Today’s Smog Index: Homing Pigeons?

Today in San Jose, Calif., as part of a weeklong art exhibition called ZeroOne, a second wave of pigeons outfitted with smog monitors will be released. The result will be a “pigeon blog” that tracks the area’s pollution levels.

Beatriz da Costa, the “artist-activist” behind the event, told
The New York Times that she’s trying to draw attention to environmental issues and that “…art offers a way of generating attention, a way of disturbing things.” I’m sure the pigeons being forced to wear her devices would agree with that last part.

But it could have been worse. While PETA couldn’t put a stop to the event, they were at least able to make their complaints about the “heavy and cumbersome equipment” heard: Da Costa redesigned the devices so that each weighed no more than 37 grams.
