After speaking to my tutor about my idea, which is to create a body of work based on murmurations, she told me about an artist called Claire Morgan.
Claire Morgan uses uncommon materials to create sculptures that base around the theme of movement. She creates these sculptures, like the one seen above, using hanging objects and manipulating the layout to create the illusion, in this sculpture, that the bird has frozen whilst flying through the thistle seeds.

Claire’s sculptures have inspired me to create a hanging sculpture using casts of birds. I am going to create a sculpture that represents the movement and patterns created by murmurations.
