Artistry of Birds in Flight
on 25 January 2014
Using the program After Effects, artist Dennis Hlynsky has made visible the flight paths of birds overhead. In his recently released video series, the sky squiggles with movement as indicator lines trail the winged creatures—much like the contrails of jets. With power lines as a resting point, and sound as the stimulus, every so often the sky blackens with a mass surge of charted flight. There's something very magical about seeing the unexpected and, at times, illogical patterns.
