Duke Riley: Fly By Night

I spent most of this past spring and summer in New York City, and it was fantastic in so many ways. I visited all the museums and wandered around the city and tried to soak up as much as I could. I was also one of the really lucky ones to get to see Fly By Night, which was this amazing art performance/light show/pigeon ballet dreamed up by the artist Duke Riley. Two thousand pigeons, each carrying a little LED light, flying in unison over the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Seriously. It was an incredible thing to see in person, and one of the highlights of my time in the city. I LOVE when people think way outside the box, and come up with a huge crazy idea, and then make it happen. Well done Mr. Riley. Such a memorable experience.

Here's a short film about his project...
