Artist Name: Rob Roberts

Description of Project

"The Ministry of the Butterfly is an interactive art installation that made its debut at Transformus 2015. It was a huge success for Alchemy 2015. We would like to bring, even bigger and better, for this year.

Our art installation features a geodesic dome that houses a healthy safe, environment for both Monarch and Painted Lady butterflies and a comfortable, relaxing and meditative space for burners.

2015's installation consisted of a 24 foot geodesic dome that has been covered by a netting reduces light and keeps butterflies contained. The netting was a piece of discarded sports field screen that we repurposed to cover the dome. Added to this installation was a water feature for the butterflies hydration needs, and plants that the butterflies eat and lay their eggs on. Two other domes including all sorts of art features will be added for 2016.

Our art installation features a geodesic dome that houses a healthy safe, environment for both Monarch and Painted Lady butterflies and a comfortable, relaxing and meditative space for burners.
