The Butterfly Effect


72” x 82” x 103” salvaged home goods, pine, live Plants and butterflies, October 2011

This butterfly habitat and hatchery, designed and built by John Cardone and James Redenbaugh, served as the centerpiece for the The Butterfly Effect, a collaborative show on the life cycle of the butterfly, hosted by Marion Wilson's Social Sculpture Class. The habitat and hatchery housed live butterflies for two months on the second floor of the 601 Tully building on Syracuse's Near West Side. The exhibit doubled as a children's museum and a live learning model for local schools, many of whom came to visit.
