In Memory 11.11.2012 - Recycled Envelopes, Entymology pins, paint, dimensions variable

Memory is a collaborative installation of 437 folded paper butterflies, a butterfly for each of the British servicemen and women that have lost their lives in the current Afghan conflict to date(As of the 10.11.2012). The installation was created with members of the public who folded, painted or pinned a butterfly to the wall at Liverpools Walker Art gallery.

 

The butterflies are folded from envelopes that have travelled through the British postal system. They are painted in household paint. The installation will be added to as the number of British fatalities increases.

 

The Killing Jar is a project which aims to document to document the fatalities of the Afghan conflict in a more direct way than the current media permits.
