Booh & the Butterflies

Inspired by the idea of terrariums and the conflicts that arise from the attempt to domesticate nature. A room-sized terrarium is filled with live butterflies (species Pieris Brassicae Catoleuca), flowers, a water fountain, and, in the middle, a bear-shaped balloon. The viewer cannot enter the terrarium but is able to observe from the outside.
  • Mixed media with 50 live butterflies, bear-shaped latex balloon, flowers, water, and greenhouse lighting system.
