A unique project entitled “Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others” by Berlin-based artists Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charriere took place during the 2012 Venice Biennale. Unless you are a tourist in Venice, most people look at pigeons as flying rats. In an attempt to change peoples perceptions, this duo created a specialized booth and painted the pigeons a variety of vivid colors. The booth worked much like a bird trap but instead of simply catching them it caught, airbrushed and released the birds. The booth was in operation for a week and created 35 flying pieces of art work. Some of the art still might be flying around the city today.
