Tribes is a quick study of human behaviour on a mass scale. Thousands of tiny people move in sync, forming connections, creating collective patterns on the landscape, and seemingly sharing common goals.
Tribes continues Universal Everything’s longstanding lines of enquiry into choreography and rules of human behaviour. Informed by the complexities of crowd dynamics, the project explores autonomy, self-organisation and group interrelationships. It questions the impact a crowd can have on an individual within it, creating an impression of the universality of human behaviour.
First screening at Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul in September 2018.
