A new installation in Berkman Hall is the creation of artist Dante Rodriguez (BA ’03). It’s inspired by starling murmurations. While the term is likely unfamiliar, you’ve seen them before. Murmurations are flocks of birds flying together while twisting and turning through the sky in sync. The phenomena reminded Dante of college students. 

“As students, we share ideas, we’re in the hallways, we meet, we congregate and communicate,” he said. 

Dante named the piece “Nebulae”, a nod to how the iridescent colors shift across his canvas. It’s reminiscent of both an ever-expanding galaxy and starling feathers.
