A SONIC WALK. A QUEER NATURE.
Using computer modelling, scientists have identified three simple rules that enable the synchronised movement of bird flocks: separation, alignment and cohesion.
Informed by flocking studies and queer ecology, Aeon is activated by silence, sound, civic responsibility and personal desire. A playful push through public space and private discomfort, this participatory experiment in group behaviour questions what it means to be natural.
Co-created by a team of multidisciplinary artists, Aeon lands a portable speaker in your palm and invites you to walk between soaring clouds of wings and piles of pigeon poo, towards a paradoxical and uncertain horizon.
“A special moment, something that feels revelatory, expansive and mystic.”
