The Definition of Butterfly Effect:
The theory that small changes in a complex system can vary the outcome of a larger situation in the same system. The term butterfly was used when a mathematician/meteorologist, named Edward Norton Lorenz, explained the theory with the example of the wind from a butterfly's wings affecting the weather patterns elsewhere in the world in dramatic ways.
The Artist's Expression of the Butterfly Effect:
Amy Wieck will conceptualize this theory in an indoor installation sculpture project. Her goal is to create greater positive change through a series of smaller actions. Elements of the installation will utilize butterfly lifecasting
, a term created by the artist to describe the act of creating a butterfly sculpture from the lifecast of a woman's torso. For Amy the Butterfly Effect is about change, transformation, hope and the cumulative effect of many little things causing larger results.
