As night falls, Luminous Birds by Kathy Hinde uses synchronised lighting and spatialised music to create the sensation of birds flying overhead. Each bird is handmade using the traditional paper folding technique of Origami. They light up in turn to create an animated sequence similar to stop motion animation accompanied by micro-compositions made from the sounds of distorted pianos and bells. The action of many birds, flocking together, is one of nature’s most amazing phenomena – an ultimate act of cooperation, hundreds moving forward in harmony.
Luminous Birds creates a moment out of the ordinary… A magical experience for all the family, to be viewed after dark.
“There is something poignant about the delicacy of Hinde’s flock of origami birds… Lights rush in perfect harmony with the wash of sound creating a unified sensorial experience.” The Times
