A FLOCK OF (six pack) SEAGULLS

The "Flock of Seagulls" is in the creation stage!  I have created 5 new Six Pack seagulls as well as a nest with eggs, these will be a part of my installation, "A Flock of (sixpack) Seagulls" Hopefully to be finished and installed by Earth Day.  In order to create consistency and symmetry of the animals, I built a "pegboard" to stretch the wire frame of the birds.

Here are some iphone shots of the completed gulls.

And here is the nest with eggs, the frame is made from wire coat hangers:

For this gull, #6, I used wire coat hangers for the frame and fishing line instead of zip ties to attach the six pack rings.

I am hoping to get to hang them at the Javits Center, here are some rough renderings I have created:

Of course I would also like to put them in atrium's and lobbies around the city and world.  Please contact me if you have any installation location ideas (or contacts) you would like to share!

I am also designing a workshop for schools, artist or eco groups where participants can create their own Gull  (info below)
