Cartesian Birds

digital habitat


Cartesian Birds are virtual organisms that dwell within computational platforms and the networks that connect them. Their songs have been found to be imitative of those of Rene Descartes, and when perceived, are intimately linked to the visual aspect of their body and environment. The tend to be found occur in flocks but may also be apprehended singularly. Thanks to an extensive community of international enthusiasts, the number of documented sightings is on the increase and some of these have been captured in video or still photos (which make up for their lack of audio by showing the organisms within their natural state).
