Jarbas Agnelli was reading his newspaper, when he suddenly saw a picture of some birds in some electric wires in Rio Grande do Sul.
He was curious to know how would they ‘sound’ if he translated the picture into music. So he cut out the picture and played the song. Then googled the photographer’s name “Paulo Pinto”, showed him the song and got interviewed for that very same newspaper.
In the interview he says: “I did not believe that Paulo Pinto had understood what I saw at the time I took the photograph. For me, the birds also seemed to note,” Then Jarbas received the original, uncut version over the e-mail and said: “When I saw the edited version in the newspaper had removed eight birds, or four notes at the beginning and four at the end of music. I was surprised because it was exactly what was needed to finish the tune.”
Anyway i think the song they made is nice :) Continue reading “Birds on a wire”
Slinkachu has been mixing photography and street based installations.
Back in 2006 he started the ‘Little People Project’. He started remodeling miniature model train set characters by hand, painting them and then put them in different situations all over the city.
Slinchaku says “It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography, and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.”
