Take Flight is an interactive sculpture combining both fragility and vigour. Thirty-two sets of rhythmically beating wings mounted on a surface behave as a swarm, influenced both by one another and the curious visitors who may approach them. Take Flight is dynamic, occupying a space somewhere between the natural and the synthetic.
Each set of wings that make up the sculpture is unique, its design generated using a specific algorithm and the delicate filigree pattern giving each pair a distinctive character, creating an intriguing foil to their insistent movements.
Take Flight is currently exhibiting at Level39, Canary Wharf. You can view a preview video of Take Flight in action on vimeo: takeflight. If you would like to visit Level39 to see Take Flight, or you are interested in including it in an exhibition, please get in touch using the details below.
