Making a handmade mural and benches, commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission, for the newly renovated Terminal 2 at SFO.
The mural features a large Golden-crowned Sparrow that doubles as a musical instrument. The wing feathers are xylophone tines.
The benches are also instruments in the shape of wings. Everything is tuned to a scale created from the notes of a sparrow's song.
All the birds are photographs I took in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This work is dedicated to my father, Dr. Peter Ayubi Kitundu, who passed away as the mural was nearing completion.
