Spikes to deter birds, so-called pigeon stoppers (wire devices that protect buildings and memorials from pigeons in many cities) are brought to life by stop-motion technique. On window ledges and billboards, they metamorphose into swarms of technoid insects made of stainless steel and plastic. This gigantic swarm of insects treks through landscapes and chops up civilisation as we know it into fragments.
