The Bird Watcher is the latest work by software artist André Goncalves:
“Several accounts where created on Twitter, one for each of the birds listed below. A Java application, developed in processing, is used to update the twitter status for each of the birds according to each species particular behaviour (ex. owls can only be heard at night, roosters sing at sunrise…). The application also gets xml weather reports from the Yahoo Weather Report which also diferently affects the species behaviour.This application is running 24/7 from a dedicated computer installed at my studio. A Master account called The_BirdWatcher follows all birds tweets.”
