Drawing inspiration from behaviours and phenomena found in the natural world, Kathy Hinde aims to share a poetic and reflective experience, enriching the viewer’s appreciation of the everyday. Luminous Birds animates a flock of origami-style birds suspended overhead, which as night falls, the synchronised lighting sequences and music create the sensation of flight.
