Project Google Birdhouse by Shuchun Hsiao

Category: Design Published on 15 Jan, 2013 Tags: , ,

Taiwanese Artist Shuchun Hsiao developed a stunning birdhouse inspired by one of the most used symbol of 21st century, the red bubble marker of Google Maps. The project tries to view the world from different perspectives and scales. “We shall change our characters to be surprised by the macro and micron landscapes. Google Map had created a remarkable landmark icon, showing the sites on its street views. To search for a landmark with online google map, we can scroll to zoom from the satellite, soon we’ll be able to wander on streets, virtually” says artist.

Birds, have the most real experience of google map. Birds can fly through the city, through streets. A birdhouse becomes their destination as google map does. The project is aiming to put numbers of birdhouses all over the city for bird to accommodate. The iconic symbol will become a navigating landmark for the flying birds.
