The Infinite Butterflies series is an exploration of the tension between industry and nature. Because of its unique life experience, starting as one animal and going through a process of almost complete disappearance to become a different animal, the butterfly is a symbol of faith and the impermanence of life. When situated between two parallel facing mirrors that create a repeating reflection, the repetition of each butterfly signifies not only layers of change but also serves as evidence of the endless perspectives that comprise existence and the ultimate harmony encompassing them all.
Each butterfly is created using humanely collected real butterfly or moth wings and a cast metal body plated in gold.
Infinity mirror framing created by Coup Studio.
