FlaminGoDC

8 Jun

As part of DC week’s emphasis on technology and communication, the
opening party is introducing a new way to communicate – flamingos.
Yes, these 10 (or other number) special birds will each be “tagged”
with a special barcode that when scanned with a smartphone will allow
you to leave notes and pictures of your DCWeek adventures with the
bird. All you need is a smartphone with a camera, and mobile internet
access. The FlaminGoDc birds will be passed around throughout the DC
week events, and participants will be asked to blog with them, and
pass them off to another participant.  The final result will be 10
unique accounts of DC week from the eyes of a special “fly” crowd
which will be displayed at the closing party.  This public works
project is in conjunction wtih DC week, the Pinkline project, and QR
arts.  Come meet the whole FlaminGoDc cast this friday at the opening
party of DC week.

If you are not attending DC week, you can track the the real time
migration patterns of the FlaminGoDc birds on the web. Soon to be
announced.
