Feathers to Form: How Birds Have Shaped An Art Practice

Walter Kitundu will discuss his work as an instrument builder and performer and share how time spent with the birds impacted his artistic trajectory. This photo-rich presentation will span his early days as a DJ making instruments powered by the elements and eventually by flocks of pigeons, to spending a year with a wild Red-tailed Hawk, and then becoming a raptor researcher along the Pacific flyway. Walter will share the lessons he has learned from birds and reveal large scale projects he is currently working on that honor cultural histories using birdsong, language, storytelling, and volcanic eruptions.
