The Black edition,will be documented,by its nature it is an evolving piece of work,therefore a work in transition ,admittedly it smaller than I intended ,but lack of space ,is a recurring theme with this project, nonetheless the small test piece, expresses the narratives of life and death ,and the transient life simultaneously.
I am still actively looking for a larger site,to create a larger version of this variation.

“Butterflies “Black edition -Living installation Design
Hacking traditional Garden design by designing only with wildflowers,considered weeds by traditionists.
Will be buying plug plants and creating a living permanent installation at a number of undisclosed sites,the artist who is inspired this work gone, by the ideas and the art he left are like seeds of inspiration for the next generations.
“Butterflies”Black edition”, will spread ,and appear again next year and finally” Butterflies”, will embody Joy ,Sadness and hope at the same time and will become what I call “applied Wabi-sabi’ asethetics.
+add notes about Butterflies “White edition” ,Exploration-Life ,Death and art and the artist.Colour and shape+
IE4-BUTTERFLIES-THE BLACK EDITION-LIFE IN ALL ITS GLORY,BUT THE FOOTNOTE IS DEATH
Working on development of ideas this week ,at home studio ,instead of fabricating experiments,strained my back,so trying to rest as much as possible,trouble is there’s so much to do.
Take “Butterflies” Black ,in order to stand a chance of making this piece,I have to start now,hope it grow and attract the butterflies, capture them on film and then exhibit the film,and its only 30 seconds,but months of planning and stuff.
The reason it is a living installation, is because I feel on reflection the White edition whilst it capture how I felt at that moment, but 6 months later, I want the work to capture the beauty of life ,even if is for 3o seconds,after all butterflies have a very short lifespan also, but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful,and whilst by the time the film is exhibited they will probably be no longer with us,like Michael,they too lived and captured our hearts with their ephemerality.
Butterflies -The Black edition ,represent the life in all its glory,but the footnote is death, like the great artist ,who inspired the work,we the audience will be watching a life once lived and able to appreciate it in all it glory.
