I made a version of this image for the Justseeds Uprisings install in Milwaukee in 2013, and have updated it a few times since then. The idea came from the phenomenon of the murmuration, and the flocking behavior of many birds. In these great assemblies of flying creatures, each individual is maintaining their own position within the mass by constantly reassessing how far they are from each other, and the function of so many individuals flying together serves to provide some protection from predators. There are lessons in biology to be learned by people organizing for a better world, and this is one of the best.
This is a new signed edition of this print with carefully remixed colors, hand-made by me at Flight 64 Studio in Portland, OR in spring of 2022.
