individuals, human and animal alike, are bound to gather spontaneously and sporadically in response to an event or environmental stimuli. this tendency of gregariousness is the subject of paris-based studio millimètre’s, ‘nuées’. triggered by a programmed matrix of fans, thousands of particles spontaneously organize, dancing and following the flow of air. air becomes visible using small, black dots as markers.

‘nuées’ visualizes a concept typically considered in the domain of immateriality. the installation is a participant in the ‘form follows information’ exhibit–curated by studio GGSV–at biennale international saint-etienne design 2015.
