Baby Flutter

© Ian Scigliuzzi

Baby Flutter is a new edition of artworks that continues Dominic’s fascination with butterflies and their beautiful forms. Each butterfly is portrayed individually within the interactively controlled artwork, and uses innovative technologies to permit the viewer to engage with the butterfly.

Butterflies represent different emotions and meanings in different cultures and are frequently used in both visual and literary arts. Dominic has through his travels selected his favourite ten butterflies as subjects for each of the edition. Some of these are native to specific regions he has travelled to, whilst others are more commonly found across the globe.

Each of the selected species has been re-interpreted as a ‘living’ portrait of the specimens, with each butterfly exhibiting its own unique mannerisms and attributes. When the viewer approaches the artwork the butterfly changes from a resting pose to a flight mode, tracking the viewer to best display its beautiful wings in a slow motion flight.
