"Flocking behavior, as a type of self-organised collective behavior, is described as the spatial formation of groups without global control and explicit inter-individual recruitment signals. ... The two other sub-processes of this self-organised collective movement [are] collision avoidance and alignment." (« Spontaneous Flocking in Groups » by Belz, Pyritz, and Boos)
(mono)Flock investigates the symbiotic relationship of the identity of the individual with the identity (or existence) of the flock. Does the individual even exist without the flock? Do we as humans understand our unique identities only because we exist in relationship/contrast to others in our flock? Or does the identity of the flock depend on the identities of each individual contained within? Is the identity of the flock a fixed and static thing ... or does it evolve in dynamic relationship to the flux of relationships and interactions--or lack there of--between its individual members?
