As part of the “World of Networks” exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Studio Drift presents its Flylight installation. An experiential sculpture that manifests the hidden phenomena and properties of nature through technology!
The work is inspired by the self-organizing behavior of birds, which move as a single unit, creating hypnotic patterns. Delicate glass tubes light up in unpredictable ways, creating an interactive pattern, like a flock of birds!
People find safety in a group, while at the same time they are forced to act according to a set of rules on which society functions. The one who chooses individual freedom above these rules, is forced to operate outside of society. Where, then, lies the perfect balance between the two?
