The Synanthrope Station

Synanthrope Stations, redistributes refuse as nesting material for birds to reuse.

Synanthropes are animals that thrive in the human world. Synanthrope Stations are ceramic capsules equipped with synthetic nesting supplies for urban dwelling birds.  Artist, Calder Kamin, collects litter from a site and organizes it to become building materials for avian architecture. This collaboration between the artist and animal serves as a testament to nature’s ability to adapt to human development and a reminder that humans still need to find creative solutions for plastic waste.
