Commissioned by the Holburne Museum in Bath, UK, this work was inspired by the flux and change of starling formations and the thousands of individual movements within those dark, moving clouds.  Created with the assistance of many volunteers, this work contained thousands of individual knots and curves, which were sculpted, strand by strand, into the mass which caressed the building during the summer of 2015.
