Emergent Behavior by Thomas Jackson

Thomas Jackson in his Emergent Behavior series, photographs airborne swarms of common objects like post-it notes, cheese balls, and plates inspired by self-organized ‘emergent’ systems in nature as termite mounds, schooling fish and flocking birds.

By constructing the pieces from unexpected materials and placing them in environments where they seem  least to belong, I aim to tweak the margins of our visual vocabulary, and to invite fresh interpretations of everyday things.

  2. Amazing. Probably one of the best uses for those horrid plastic cups I’ve ever seen. I remember many summer camps and/or church picnics drinking rancid generic kool aid out of those things.
