ANTÓNIO CARAMELO'S DREAMING OF A BUTTERFLY
04 Nov-31 Jan 2012; Laura Cinti - 30 Jan 2012

Opening of António Caramelo's ‘Dreaming of a Butterfly’

C-LAB completes the second phase of the European Public Art Centre (EPAC) with the opening of the Portugese work of António Caramelo's Dreaming of a Butterfly in Bishop's square Spitalfields in London. 

Movement of butterflies is triggered by sound from audience

This interactive artwork uses surrounding sounds (from audience) to trigger movement of the butterflies inside.

Celebrating the opening of 'Dreaming of a Butterfly'

A small opening was held on the square celebrating the work and exchange of art between European partners. This second phase of the project involving C-LAB (UK), Ectopia (Portugal) and the Finnish Bioart Society (Finland). Last month Finland received the UK artwork Bee Box by Anne Brodie.

Contemplating the real

Caramelo provides the audience with a contemplation of the real. The work also plays on a poem by the chinese philosopher Zhuangzi where a man dreams of a butterfly, however, upon waking up the man is not sure if he is a man dreaming he was a buttefly or a butterfly dreaming he we was a man.

The work will be showing in London up until the end of this year

The work will be on show in London until the 31st of December 2011.
