museum of infinite outcomes, bird houses 

i just saw that the museum of infinite outcomes is putting out another call for a show of birdhouses this summer in atlanta.

the way it works is you build a birdhouse or a sculpture that's functionally a birdhouse and ship it to atlanta and they will install it in some trees and maybe some birds will live in it this summer and then at the end of the summer you get your birdhouse back
