Thomas Jackson

Die Serie ‘Emergent Behavior’ von Thomas Jackson ist inspiriert von natürlichen vorkommenden Schwärmen wie die der Heuschrecken, Termiten, Fischen oder Vögeln. Jackson setzt den künstlichen Schwarm in eine ungewohnte, unnatürliche Perspektive und verdeutlicht so den Kontrast zwischen Natur und Kreation, zwischen Realität und Fiktion.

‘The hovering sculptures featured in this ongoing series of photographs are inspired by self-organizing, ‘emergent’ systems in nature such as termite mounds, swarming locusts, schooling fish and flocking birds. The images attempt to tap the mixture of fear and fascination that those phenomena tend to evoke, while creating an uneasy interplay between the natural and the manufactured and the real and the imaginary. At the same time, each image is an experiment in juxtaposition. By constructing the sculptures from unexpected materials and placing where they seem least to belong, I aim to tweak the margins of our visual vocabulary, and to invite fresh interpretations of everyday things.’
