Emergent Behavious by Thomas Jackson

Photographer Thomas Jackson has created this series of stunning images which sees ordinary objects suspended in nature to form patterns of emergent behaviour which he describes below:

"The hovering installations 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 installations from unexpected materials and placing them where they seem least to belong, I aim to tweak the margins of our visual vocabulary, and to invite fresh interpretations of everyday things. "

Exploring and developing his methodology, the items are now suspended using transparent lines which can barely be seen, reducing the use of post production.
