It’s For the Birds!
I have always loved miniature things – like the little cassette tapes that go in old answering machines and burger sliders. I didn’t know until today that I also like miniature replicas of Airbnb rental homes.
Airbnb (the community marketplace for unique places to stay all over the world) recently launched a new campaign called “Home to You.” It engaged several artists to create miniature bird house replicas of some of its actual rental properties – the idea being that “no creatures on earth travel quite like birds do.” (Airbnb) Then they hung them on a tree, played some folk songs, and waited for the birds to show.
Check out some of my favorite reconstructions below but also the video here – it’s pretty ridiculously cute to see birds roaming around the furniture inside these tiny homes!
Final thought: Birds bug me. Or at least the sound of birds. I would probably like mute birds.
