This installation, entitled Butterflies, is an expression of hope for meaningful connections between all living creatures. The cascading dance shared by the color shifting butterflies reflects a diverse and vibrant community and the bonds that encourage collaboration, unity, and inclusivity.

 

Some of the butterflies flap their wings individually throughout the day, eventually finding harmony in their movements. They begin to synchronize with each other using color and light emanating from their wings, revealing how our shared culture is built from cooperation and kinship.
