We are loving the striking juxtaposition Thomas Jackson has created in this series! From Colossal:

Photographer Thomas Jackson (previously) is intrigued by the movements and behaviors of swarms, something he seeks to replicate in temporary installations he constructs for the purpose of making a single photo as part of his Emergent Behavior series. From swarming locusts, to schools of fish or flocks of birds, the San Francisco-based artist recreates these self-organizing behaviors with common objects like plastic cups, party streamers, or hula hoops. Each piece is made as seen here using various methods of filament and other hidden structures that hold everything in place for the photograph—nothing is digitally edited and the pieces aren’t being thrown through the air.

Read more, see more from Thomas Jackson, and don’t miss this series at Miller Yezerski Gallery running 11/18-12/23
