noun: butterfly effect
The scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever.
Broken Wings can travel to your community to create a safe space for healing discussions about kindness. This installation offers an alternative solution to work towards resolving cultural or relational divisions. Based on the notion of the butterfly effect, the art portrays how multiple tiny movements can influence positive change.
Broken Wings enacts the Butterfly Effect of Kindness, reminding individuals that every small deed or word has an effect. This notion solidifies through collective contributions as the project grows. The exhibit challenges participants to explore new ways to empower others, especially those who are hurting, isolated, or bullied, through empathy and action.
Powerful message for schools and anyone concerned for our growing unkind culture.
Broken Wings is expanding with new iterations of the work.
