Designboom shared details about this shape-shifting drone display!

DRIFT presents Living Landscape, an exhibition of two immersive and interactive artworks, at LUMA Arles. To mark the opening of the exhibition, the contemporary artist duo staged a drone performance above the museum’s Frank Gehry-designed tower, tracing the movement in Van Gogh’s paintings using their swarming algorithm against the night sky. Titled Electric Sky, the performance is conceived as an extension to the recently-opened group show at the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, Van Gogh and the Stars, which celebrates the return of the Dutch artist’s Starry Night painting to Arles for the first time in 136 years.

Living Landscape brings together two installations, Murmuring Minds and Coded Nature, that explore swarming behavior to reveal the visible and invisible aspects of nature around us. ‘Our interest in forming patterns and our fascination with the sacrifice of our freedom to live inside the social structure—that’s basically what it’s all about,’ Ralph Nauta, co-founder and artist of DRIFT, tells designboom during the opening. ‘Also, our position within these forms, how we react to them, and what they mean to us.’
