Abstract:

The city of Toronto is located on a flight path used by millions of migratory
birds. It is estimated that, “1 to 10 birds will hit each building, each year, in North
America alone. In Toronto, that amounts to between 1 to 10 million migrating birds lost
every year.”1 Although these collisions account for more bird deaths every year than
anything else, this knowledge is not widespread or collectively seen as a need for
concern. The overall objective of this interdisciplinary project is to expose this issue
through collage. The project aims to increase people’s awareness of bird-building
collisions and avian perception, and to lead to new questions for future interdisciplinary
research.
