September is a month of new beginnings.
It’s the beginning of fall and returning to school. In the Jewish calendar it is the beginning of the New Year. I have friends moving to Boston, London and Berlin this week. It is also my birthday (on the 7th), and this year my husband and I are moving to a new place – a house of our own, which we can call HOME.
With the season changing, I think about the birds migrating each year – flying away to warmer places, traveling great distances above oceans.
There is something very powerful in the image of a flock of birds flying together, hundreds of individuals creating a wonderful pattern in the sky. Watching them from below, you sometimes want to join them: touch the sky, reach for the starts and be part of a greater whole traveling to adventurous places.
This collection of 12 Art projects inspired by Birds Migration brings many different interpretations to this strong visual of a flock. Some are finished works and some are hand-made materials in which you can create your own art. While each artist used different medium and different materials to create, these works all carry a sense of freedom, a dream of a better place, and the longing for a fresh new beginning.
Keep your creative heart open to change this September, as it may bring you something new.
