Apart Together records domesticated pigeon flocking through three different perspectives. Each perspective shares the same ambient audio recording from the surrounding landscape using the birds and the city as an amphitheater. The first perspective is from afar - a macro perspective focused on group behavior and the geometric renderings “drawn” by the group. The second zooms into a closer view illustrating the structural web like contribution of each individual. The third and final view is from the perspective of the individual itself, giving the viewer the experience of flight - altering our relationship from observer to participant, identifying the contrasting relationship between the individual and the collective.
