Tap on your screen to populate your surroundings with life-size augmented reality flamingos. Join the flock! Dance with FLARMINGOS in interspecies solidarity to original flamingo-inspired music. Pick up flamingo dance moves researched by scientists, snap a photo, and adopt a wild flamingo through a wetlands conservation initiative.
FLARMINGOS is a project of artist Kristin Lucas, produced through a Tech Residency at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and made in partnership with Tour du Valat research institute in Arles, France. FLARMINGOS are virtual representations of wild flamingos Lucas sponsors through Tour du Valat's flamingo adoption program. They are animated by human motion capture and a dynamic flocking algorithm that influences their behavior.
FLARMINGOS works best in well-lit areas.
