Spring 2016

[Murmurations]

Our days are made up of interactions between objects and individuals. Each interaction entangles us into a never ending connection with the people and things around us. The multitude of these interactions, each little instance and each large web of moments, creates who we are now and who we will become. Similarly, the multitude of individuals made up of their own layers of moments and tangles of experiences, make up the entirety of history. This organism that results is intangible and does not take place in a physical way except when it results in Art.  This idea of the many making up the entirety can be viewed in nature, in murmurations, Cell growth, plants growth, swarms of fish, and many other natural formations.

These are the ideas that formed during my exploration of representing light in space this spring.
