“An interactive exhibit giving our birds a voice and bringing the forest back to life.”
The New Zealand wild is losing its voice. Forests once filled with the sound of birdsong are now silent, the inhabitants driven out by a steady stream of predators they cannot defend themselves from. Activated by interaction with forest visitors, their stories are projected throughout Thistle Hall. But beware the rats and possums lurking in the shadows—make sure the birds are tucked up in bed safe each night! Tweet me is the concept of Tanya Marriott in response to her 2006 Creative NZ/DOC Wild creations residency at Maud Island wildlife reserve.
