Project Description

The Poo Printer (2013)

‘The Poo Printer’, a project by artist Fabrizio Lamoncha, attempts to have a group of zebra finches generate typography by having them poo on a piece of paper.

 

from We Make Money Not Art:
The Poo Printer consists of a wooden cage sized 170x120cm and 100cm high with a removable tray in the center. This tray has interchangeable parts looking like tree branches with integrated food dispensers. According to the order of placement of these pieces it creates the shape of each of the characters of the Latin alphabet. The birds will hang out there most of the day, eating, pooing and even eating and pooing simultaneously.
