Normally whenever I see a pair of shoes hanging on a power line, I know it was some poor soul who’s kicks got thrown up there by a group of punks. Yet, Oslo-based designer Christian Bermudez found a more helpful use of shoes on a power line in his venture the “Birdhouse Project.” This amazing design was meant to be a functional nesting space for the pied flycatcher, a migrant bird that’s indigenous to West Africa. These birds usually leave Africa from April to September when its winter there and fly to Norway where its Summer. The wooden shoes are hung at the same height from which a bird flies and have detachable soles to allow for cleaning when the season is over. These are definitely the type of shoes I could get used to seeing hanging around in my neighborhood.
