Prompt: What is a constructed environment? What is New York and how can we learn from it? For my final project, I asked these questions in order to create something that would demonstrate a "constructed environment."

Since living in the city, I noticed that the city has a lot of pigeons that don’t do much other than peck at food. I researched on the topic and created an interactive diorama to show how pigeons could be used to create electricity by using their pecking energy.
