emma nilsson: livet på en pinne bird module
‘livet på en pinne’ by emma nilsson
on agricultural farming and how production using heavy machinery and pesticides has had an intensifying effect on horticulture
over the years. the decrease in biodiversity within the landscape has affected important bird nesting grounds, where their ability to
find food and water has been diminished.
the project ‘livet på en pinne’ mimics a natural biotope, that could be placed within an agronomous landscape.
the module simulates an eco-system, taking existing materials within a farm site such as stones, branches and leafs
to create breeding grounds and habitats for different bugs and species. insects assist farmers with pollination and pest
control on their cropland and providing an important food source for the birds. the top of the product is designed
to collect rainwater, accommodating them with a fresh water source and an area for cleaning their feathers.
