Spray painted pigeons for the 2012 Venice Biennal

Most city-slickers think of pigeons as ‘rats with wings’, but Julian Charriere and Julius von Bismarck feel differently. The two want to change people’s perception of these birds, so they spray painted some pigeons and let them loose during the 2012 Venice Biennal (without harming the birds, of course). The brightly-colored birds are quite a sight to see, but no matter what color they are, they’ll still poop on your head.
