Swarming Mundane Objects of Thomas Jackson

Photographer Thomas Jackson captures every day objects traveling in packs.  His series Emergent Behavior features plastic cups, leaves, sticky notes, gathering into swarms.  These mundane objects fly through city streets and forests, mostly whimsical but at times menacing.  They reference self-organizing systems often found in nature such as herding,  swarms, insect mounds, and so on.  Regarding this Jackson says:

“The images attempt to tap into the fear and fascination that those phenomena tend to evoke, while creating an uneasy interplay between the natural and the manufactured and the real and the imaginary”. (via)
