Abstract [en]

This art piece installation intents to provoke people to think about life and death through the fallen wings of butterflies. The different sizes of butterfly wings symbolizes the variety of people living in our society. And just like human beings, the butterfly wings gain energy when touched by people. The energy is transformed into a brief flutter and a change of color into brighter warmer tones. The wings will not live forever. They will eventually fall to the ground, but as they decay new life begins and for each wing a flower will begin to sprout. The research aim of this project is to explore possible expressions of smart textile principles. The technology used in this project is thermochromatic ink and motors.
