Few months ago I started a little personal project, where I created hand-drawn butterflies with different incorporated messages. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/19bIkrR. After shooting photos of them in public spaces I thought it might be a good idea to spread them around the city. Since the »original« versions just took too much time to create, I thought about finding a way to create swarms of them some other way. It took me quite some time to find a technique to get them produced, but now it's finally done. After printing and cutting, I fold them and add some tape to every single one of them. Right now there are more than 1000 butterflies spread everywhere in Berlin and some other German cities. I gave them away, left them in bars, clubs, restaurants, exhibitions, on bikes, tables etc… There's nothing more in it than making people smile, even if it's just for a few seconds. I hope it works! cheers . andreas Read Less
