#The All American Bird of Prey
The Bald Eagle is both the national bird and national animal of the United States of America. It is also a sacred bird in some North American cultures, in which its feathers are used in spiritual rituals and customs. Bald Eagles are known to mate for life, building the largest nests in the bird kingdom together, high up in trees. They have been observed to replace their mate, however, if one of them dies.
“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 behavior.
