Primary Emergence

Thomas F. Muller's avatar Thomas F. Muller

An experimental sculpture. Bright light is produced. Some light filters through a stainless steel vertical mesh screen on the sides, resulting (I hope) in Moire patterns on the butterflies/moths wings. Most light is projected through the top cover and into hundreds of spherical lenses that project the light in and out of themselves. Horizontally, three imagination induced butterflies/moths in primary colors; symbolically, feed on light, the source of all color. Essentially, it is Op-art with three levels of awareness, and a green building design.
