Butterflies in Flight - Art Installation
Exhibited at Figment's participatory art Event at Governors island in NYC.

Project Description:
The first element of Butterflies in Flight is a colored pencil on transparent vellum fully functional 3ft kite in the form of a distinctly ovoid butterfly. Visitors were welcome to contribute to the project by uniquely coloring/painting/drawing upon their own smaller butterfly which was added to the project, in flight. Weather Permitting, I Originally envisioned an entire flight of uniquely created butterflies gracefully floating above a sun drenched field. Due to the rain and lack of wind, I created a butterfly habitat inside a mesh and canvas gazebo.
