A canopy of empty bird cages hang above the street making graphic shapes and shadows against blue Sydney skies. This permanent public art installation plays a soundscape of birdsong. The calls, tweets and twittering are from bird species that used to live in this area, before the city replaced their native habitats. The installation is known as ‘Forgotten Songs’ and is part of the Laneways: By George Hidden Networks project.
