The Butterfly Effect

In chaos theory the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state. A flap of a butterfly wing in one part of the world could be the cause of a tornado in a different part of the world. In other words a small change now could have a big effect in our lives later. All our actions have consequences, and we need to take our responsibilities, especially when it comes to our beautifulplanet. With ‘The Butterfly Effect artist is framing the nature, focusing on the nature, and reminding us we are part of the nature, creating awareness on the importance of this subject. This project is the next step of bringing us closer to our planet. Like the
movement ‘Arte Povera’, he chose a very common material, the corn leaves, as a building material to create the finest structure of zoomed-in butterfly wings. Artist made his own pigments from indigo, avocado peel and seeds to stay true to his ideas and convictions whilst creating these series of art works. Artists aim is to show the hidden beauty and richness of organic structures.
