    rAndom’s ‘Swarm’ works translate patterns of collective behaviour found in nature into moving light.
    The first exploration of this kind, ‘Swarm Light’ emulates the behaviour of a group of birds. The sound created by visitors’ presence stimulates the installation’s ‘collective consciousness’, causing the abundant individual lights to respond in swarm-like formations.
    The viewer is invited into a responsive relationship with the work itself and its surrounding sphere; as the installation reacts to the sound of its onlookers and the illuminated swarm animates the space.
