FLARMINGOS APPDownload the app! Tap on your screen to populate your surroundings with life-size augmented reality flamingos that perform courtship displays, flamingo "dance moves" researched by scientists. The flamingos are animated by human motion capture of the artist performing like a flamingo and a dynamic flocking algorithm that influences their collective behavior.
As human population increases and wetlands are developed, flamingos suffer from disturbance to their habitats, resulting in difficulty with breeding. The larger the flamingo colony size, the greater their chance of successful breeding. Flarmingos are virtual representations of twenty wild flamingos the artist has adopted through a conservation initiative. App users are invited to dance with flarmingos in interspecies solidarity and their presence increases the colony size. The app features original flamingo-inspired music and a button that takes you to Tour du Valat's flamingo adoption webpage where you can sponsor your very own wild flamingo!
FLARMINGOS is compatible with the Apple iPhone 6+ and higher, Apple 9.7-inch iPad (5th Generation), and Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The app requires iOS 11.
