The Butterfly Effect



The Butterfly Effect

sustainable art project

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. 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. All our actions have consequences, and we need to take our responsibilities, especially when it comes to our beautiful planet. With The Butterfly Effect I’m framing the nature, focusing on the nature, and reminding us that we are part of the nature, creating awareness on the importance to keep the planet clean. This project is the next step of bringing us closer to our planet. Like the movement‘Arte Povera’, I chose a very common material, the corn leaves, as a building material to create the finest structure of zoomed-in butterfly wings. I use natural pigments and inks like indigo, nettle leaf, avocado peel and seeds to stay true to my ideas and convictions whilst creating these series of art works. My aim is to show the hidden beauty and richness of organic structures.

My ‘Butterfly Effect’ addresses the problem of climate change as a result of overconsumption and waste. With all challenges we are facing regarding the environment and our planet, it is key to focus on sustainable way of working by using all possible leftover materials. I found new ways to incorporate for instance corn leaves and avocado peals and seeds to create my art, and to make us all experience nature in a different way and promote sustainable thinking and living. Focusing what is around us and what could be usable and/ or reusable.  In a way making art from garbage. I try to Inspire the people into searching for new ways towards better future of our planet.
