“Air Pressure”, a kinetic sculptural installation created by the Toronto-based artist collective Studio F Minus. It consists of over 175 animated fabric forms in the shape of birds. In order to create the naturalistic effect of flying, the wings of each bird move independently in a flapping motion, responding to internal air pressure fluctuations, inflating and deflating by electronic timers switching fans on and off inside each bird; Winter Garden at Brookfield Place in Battery Park City.

I recently decided to go out with my Canon G9 again, since I needed to travel light, but wanted to have the flexibility from a slightly wide to fairly strong telephoto lens. In bright light the G9 performs nicely. Here is a scene from Wintergarden, World Financial Center, New York City.
