In her origami work, the butterflies reference early scientific collections and an elemental form of data gathering, driven more by wonder and obsession than real logic or understanding. The arrays of up to one thousand elements, all more or less subtly different from one another offer a dizzying display of the near infinite possible permutations the human mind can create. But each is precisely pinned into a phyllotaxis Fibonacci Spiral with entomological conservation pins, a mathematical function chosen by Rodin for two reasons: all the butterflies are equidistant and it’s an open system - one more or one less butterfly and they would still be in a democratic circular arrangement. In a sense, each butterfly represents an individual, beautiful and different from all the others.
In addition to the work available through H&E, this artist has an extensive portfolio available on request. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.
