J'ai des papillons noirs tous les jours

silk, paper, plexiglas, lights, electronics, 2800 bug pins
31" x 57" x 3"

A colloquial French expression for depression, each of these butterflies is pinned down with one hundred bug pins. Their bodies slowly pulse with light, out of sync with each other, like stars in a night sky.
