Murmurations, is an Ephemeral Plastic Sculptures by French photographer Alain Delorme. You’ve already seen these flock of starlings —called a murmuration— that can spin through the sky in a tightly choreographed display of stunning beauty. Well… photographer Alain Delorme re-created it with plastic bags. Delorme thinks bags fluttering through the air or strewn in the gutter, draw a similar reaction, but for different reasons. This is a way to bring the light on a very important environment issue.
To do this project Alain Delorme shot different transparent plastic bags 150 to 200 times and then duplicated them so in total you may have 10,000 bags per image. The project took a year and a half to accomplish.
