Impromptu Urban Bird Houses: Rhys Newman’s Bird on a Wire Series
Design

Though no one is quite sure of the origin of the practice of hanging shoes from power lines, it’s a phenomenon that can be seen throughout urban areas.

Artist Rhys Newman has created a limited edition series of birdhouses that are used in much the same way. Tossing one of his constructions over a wire provides a beautiful and useful living space for birds. The project was started at the beginning of the year, but a new batch is scheduled to appear at some point in the future. So far, houses have gone up in Tokyo, Sydney, SanFrancisco, Toronto, Seattle, Builth Wells, Brighton, Helsinki, Buenos Aires, Panguitch Lake and Cardiff.
