Peregrine Falcon

Falco peregrinus


“Ruffled” is a recent interactive artwork in which “living” portraits of birds are reinvented by using technology. Each “Ruffled” has been designed with its own particular mannerisms and beauty. Some birds are very expressive, while others tend to have a mora subtle behaviour.


The Peregrine is bird of prey that is renowned for its speed during its high speed dive. Reaching speeds of over 322 km/h, it is the fastest member of the animal kingdom. Although the species is so widespread that it is found almost anywhere on earth, they are more commonly seen along mountain ranges, river valleys, coastlines and even cities. They are the most widespread of all the falcons.
