After humans capture butterflies, they want to make specimens to preserve their beauty. I use acrylic to make a “screen,” while the luminescent LED helps to create the “specimens” of the technological butterflies. However, the butterflies are not real. They are simply 3D moving images created by 3D image projection and lenpicular lens. Every specimen has its own registration number as if it were an experimented object being reproduced, stored, or appreciated and mourned after their destruction. The series works again emphasize that if human beings fail to protect or cherish nature, the day will come that we can only appreciate, capture, or mourn for the “reality” we once had. The “reality” will eventually be replaced by the illusion – the virtual reality. Ironically, the butterfly specimens are fake (illusional) too. They might be beautiful, almost like real, but they can only be a technological project.
