Butterfly Idea Caen Art by Caen-N Butterfly Idea Caen Art by Caen-N
My series of Ideas is a social commentary on societies “throw away culture”.
The Edison light globe is a dead technology but one that had a massive impact on the world, with most of the evidence of this invention being simply trashed and replaced.

Butterfly Idea is something I've had in the planning stage for a while but only just got the right butterfly to use. Although I find the butterfly to be too pretty as such for how i feel about my art, it is none-the-less a symbol and metaphor of many interpretations and one that suits my series quite well.

I am not a photographer, it is a photo of my conceptual work.

Yes you may share my work but please always credit me, Tumblr, FB etc.

Feel free to comment how you might interpret any of my works.

Where I do always love your works, something about this one doesn't stand out to me as much as the other Ideas in your series. I agree with your following statement of the butterfly being almost "too pretty", and I think that's possibly why, as the viewer, I'm not connecting to it as much.

Minor suggestion, that you don't have to listen to at all, but you might try adding more contrast between the insect and the bulb? Dirtying the bulb some, might make it a little less clean/pretty is the first thing that came to mind. (Unless of course you were going for clean cut and pretty <3)

All in all, I like it! I didn't feel as strongly for this piece as I have for your past works, but it wasn't bad! I'd like to see you expand on this particular idea further!
What do you think?

Just a thought, wouldn't it look more fitting to the throw away culture if the glass was stained, dirty or even broken? The beauty of the butterfly would contrast more with the bulb.. anyway I love the concept!!

It looks like it's coming out from the bottom like the electric current does.
Also, are those water droplets or lighting at the bottom? Either way, it adds more uniqueness to it <3
