The image on the right was a current still captured from a live video
feed of the space inside the aviary at Nexus
Contemporary Art Center, in Atlanta, as seen by the telerobotic
macaw. Stills from the live video feed were captured every five seconds
and reloaded automatically every sixty seconds. This was optimized for
28.8 kbps or slower dialup links. For immediate updates, viewers clicked
on the Reload button at the top of their Web browser. When logging on after
5 PM (Atlanta local time, i.e., US Eastern Time), viewers saw a dark
image since Nexus Contemporary Art Center closed at 5 PM during the
exhibition. The lights were shut off so that the birds could go to sleep.
