Birdhouses are normal in many countries around the world, but an artistically designed birdhouse like the bird-shoe-house project by Christian Bermudez is not at all common.
As its name suggests, the bird-shoe-house project is inspired shoefiti or shoe tossing and consists for three pair of shoe-shaped birdhouses. The primary purpose of the project is to provide home to a migrant bird Pied Flycatcher. However, the moment the birdhouse project was installed, it became an instant art installation and attraction in Lillehammer, Norway. Because of the catchy design and eco-friendly it uses, the artistic and eco-friendly bird-shoe-house project was supported by the Arts Council Norway and Kunstnersenteret i Oppland.
