White Flight coming to Light

As I go deeper into assignment 3 I am able to apply my own concepts onto the idea of a light box. having Met's project allows me to play with narrative by using lights. I am playing with the idea of white flight and using birds as a representation of population shifts. The birds of color are being pulled out and the white birds are flying into the city. Playing with wires and power I realized conduction materials are importance for the function of my sculpture. I'm using aluminum and wire as conductors along with power to show off the lighting.
