S.C.O.L.D., which stands for Species Calling Out Liars and Deniers, is the brainchild of the artist/scientist team Carla Bengtson and Peter Wetherwax. The guerrilla-style, interventionist project partners with crows to give animals a voice in global warming debates by targeting climate-change deniers for scoldings by crows.

The project is part of the Portland2016 Biennial, curated by Michelle Grabner, a major survey of Oregon artists who are defining and advancing the state’s contemporary arts landscape.

Research shows crows never forget a face, and network to share opinions about people. After even a single bad experience, crows will pick “dangerous” humans out from a crowd, deriding and following them for up to a mile. S.C.O.L.D. enlists artists and citizens to make enemies among crows by appearing at crow gatherings wearing masks of climate-change deniers while holding taxidermied crows. Crows will share their negative opinions among crows, while pop-up guerilla interventions and media spread the word among humans.

The science behind S.C.O.L.D.:
