Canari Shift

Canari, Canthaxanthine, 2005

Canari Shift consist in changing the colour of a live canary bird over the duration of an exhibition. The canary is yellow at the start of the exhibition and gradually becomes orange (the intensity of the shade depending mainly on the duration of the show). The canary leaves its well-identified colour, for another which will make it gradually less and less recognisable as a canary.
