Tsui Kuang-Yu

“Bowling Alley in London” by artist Tsui Kuang-Yu. I had seen this work a long time ago and forgotten the artist, but thanks to the help of Roberto Pérez (via the Booooooom Tumblr) I was able to track down the video again and upload it to Youtube.

  • I was surprised at how quickly they assess the threat of the ball, considering how close pigeons generally let you walk by. Excellent concept, thanks for tracking this down & sharing!

    stupid. leave these pigeons alone!

  • perfect game

  • chris

    This guy is an asshole. Stupid, unimaginative concept, leave the fucking pigeons alone.

      Hi Chris, I was the assistant on the London part of that whole video series. You’ll be glad to know that the amazing thing about pigeons, also about birds, is that they fly away.

      The work is part of a series of different gestures and it makes more sense when you see the whole thing: watch from about 3mins in in the second video to see clips of the rest.

      Anyway, the only living thing harmed during the making of this video was me and my frigging shins, cos I was the one who had to run off and stop the ball.

    Chris, watch the second video and call him “unimaginative” again. he may not give a shit about what people think (bowling pigeons or golfing in a city park) but what good artist ever thought twice about an instinctive idea?

    This guy is great, a lot of the second video is filmed in Amsterdam, made me miss the city! The sprinkler jacket is great!!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

See the rest of the series below.
