Butterflies flap in relation to central London’s pollution levels in Andrea Williamson’s Yellow Butterfly Chair #ArtTuesday

NewImage

From Annka Kultys Gallery:

Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s dystopian 1963 novel Cat’s Cradle, which also takes place during “the end of the world”, amidst Cold War paranoia, Andrea Williamson’s piece draws from her own imagination, particularly fascinated by Vonnegut’s description of a butterfly chair. Williamson’s version is a beautifully crafted wooden chair, covered with intricately hand-painted, motorised butterflies, whose wings are programmed to flap in correlation with the monitored pollution levels of Central London.
