At twilight at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Duke Riley released thousands of birds with LED lights strapped to their legs, illuminating the sky in a choreographed flight pattern. The Creators Project got a chance to meet with Duke in his converted aircraft carrier-turned-birdcoop in the days before this first performance, getting exclusive behind-the-scenes access to his process: The complex training of pigeons, the inspiration behind this performance art piece, and Duke's history in creating art about and with marginalized communities, including the pigeon fanciers of New York.
