ART    2013-2014 Melbourne Now - NGV

You, me and the flock is a special interactive commission created by Juan Ford, which invites viewers to add birds to a growing flock set against a panoramic sky-scape. The addition of each bird changes the flock’s shape and movement, inviting exploration of ideas such as separation, alignment and cohesion, terms used by scientists to describe the behaviours of flocking birds but which might equally apply to human behaviours.

 

This work was a part of Melbourne Now at the National Gallery of Victoria. Melbourne Now was the first of its kind, showcasing the best of Melbourne's artists, designers, architects and creative industries.
