Butterfly (A fossilized memory) uses natural materials (sand, stone, cotton, etc) to create an object surrounded by the mystery and magic associated with the discovery of an artefact underneath layers of historical information. It wishes to create an experience akin to the discovery of an archaeological site, an unexplainable familiarity accompanied with wonder and ultimately a sense of cultural resonance.
