The structure of time, as a flow from the past to the future, is the basis of this artwork. An attractive past, illuminated, bright, opposed yet intimately linked to the darkness, both real and metaphorical of the indefinite future. Between the past and the future, the set of images and objects, which the author collects and processes, gives shape to the laboratory of the 'present'.The butterfly represents the medium which gives access to the structure and allows to perceive the flow.
In this work, I reflect on materialisation, movement, and dematerialisation. The drawings’ composition, from the image’s animation inside the boxes to its disappearance, shows the butterfly’s path.
