I first saw this butterfly art in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Large clear plastic boxes are filled with dried butterflies of differing colors and shaped into various patterns. (Here is a a link to the website…ButterflyPeople ). The colors and shimmers of those butterfly wings almost make one forget that this art consists of pinning dead bugs to a plastic sheet.
I tried to find an artist’s name on the website,or their business card, but no name appears. In fact, the term “we ” is used to discuss the creation of the art, along with the name Butterfly PEOPLE. So, is this art or product? Does it matter?
