Recognised for their beauty, elegance and wide variety, butterflies are also known for their fragility. To touch one is a destructive act, as an individual’s fingertips have the power to destroy the delicate layers that make up their wings. However, in Flutter Wall, the viewer, presented with a lepidopterist’s cabinet of colourful butterfly specimens, has the opportunity to touch the creatures without causing harm. Instead, such contact brings the insects back to life, a stark comparison to the damage usually caused by human interaction in reality. The work can quickly transform into a swarming kaleidoscope of butterflies, their frenzied flight dominating the screen before once again settling in a stunning array of colour.
