      DRIFT’s latest exhibition, Living Landscape, at LUMA Arles, showcases two immersive artworks exploring swarming behavior. To kick off the event, the artist duo staged a drone show called Electric Sky above the museum’s tower. The performance, inspired by Van Gogh’s paintings, featured advanced swarming algorithms creating a celestial dance in the night sky. This event connects with the recent show at Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, celebrating the return of Starry Night to Arles after 136 years.

      Living Landscape presents two installations: Murmuring Minds and Coded Nature. These works delve into nature’s visible and invisible aspects through swarming behavior. Ralph Nauta, DRIFT’s co-founder, explains that the pieces investigate our roles within these structures and their significance to us.

      Murmuring Minds consists of 60 moving blocks mimicking swarm behavior, reacting to participants. This blurs the line between natural and artificial, emphasizing decision-making complexity. The blocks’ movement, controlled by code, encourages active participation.

      Coded Nature features real-time digital starling swarm software projected on a screen. This interactive piece explores the human-nature-technology relationship. An autonomous swarm responds to the audience, symbolizing nature’s continuous change and creation flow. It questions how humans navigate societal rules and freedom concepts.
