About the piece:
As the warm sets on a waning summer haze, birds take flight in search of warmer days. ‘Migration’ captures the phenomenal spectacle of the annual geese migration as they journey thousands of miles to warmer climates and evade the bitterness of winter in the northern hemisphere. While many geese adopt the stereotypical V-formation during flight, some species, such as Brent geese, migrate in family groups and often fly in wavering lines. ‘Migration’ captures this particular animal behaviour and the beautiful aerial art it creates through their spontaneously synchronised flight formation. As well as evoking themes of change, hope and adventure, ‘Migration’ reminds us of the cycle of life and the importance of adaptability to constant change, but also the significance of family, unity and togetherness.
