Flutter

Flutter is an interactive artwork by Dominic Harris that explores the viewer’s encounter with a rabble of virtual butterflies. The sequenced form of the installation references animation ideas first developed in the zoetrope, and its later successor, the praxinoscope. However, in a developmental move away from the linear time-sliced nature of these devices, the introduction of interactive control in ‘Flutter’ makes the ephemerality of the encounter influence its semiotics.

Set within a striking architectural framework and making use of cutting edge technologies, the artwork is a product of his on-going fascination with the motion of a butterfly’s flight and the iridescent reflections and scattering of light by the scales on a butterfly’s wing. As the viewer moves along the piece, the butterflies respond in various manners, directly interacting with the viewer.
