With a nature documentarian’s eye, photographer and sculptor Thomas Jackson builds and photographs swarms of mundane objects. Plates, glow sticks, cheese balls and cups seem to float and flutter in uniform formations, mimicking the patterns of delicate hummingbirds and butterflies. Jackson seeks to minimize the role of digital editing in his work; he builds and hangs the arrangements of objects in natural settings, only using Photoshop to remove the evidence of the sculptures’ skeletons. Take a look at some of Jackson’s works below, images courtesy of Thomas Jackson.
