Cafemode proudly present "Homing Pigeon 「伝書鳩」" group photo exhibit by local and international artists

Before Internet and email there were homing pigeons. These pigeons carried messages only one way, to their home. By placing their food at one location and their home at another location, pigeons learned to fly back and forth up to twice a day reliably becoming an important means of communication.

The importance of homing pigeons in the centuries before electronic communications, such as the telegraph and telephone, is seldom recognized. Pigeons carried photographic negatives, documents of breaking news and even medication between hospitals countries apart.
As our means of communication developed into the present hyper-network, today's homing pigeons have retired from messengers and now trained as racing pigeons. It is thought that racing pigeons rely on the Earth's magnetic field to find their way home. Some evidence has surfaced indicating that mobile phone towers may be interrupting the birds navigation although no published research has investigated this theory.

The theme of this photography exhibit is an observation of the value of messaging; the sending, the expectations and the challenge of not expecting any return.

いまのようにインターネットや emailが発達する前、伝書鳩(ハト)は重要な通信手段だった。
その帰還率が全体的 に年々悪くなっており、レースによっては全滅するレースも発生しているという。
