Artwork Title: ‘The Butterfly Effect’

Artwork Location: Newcastle Rd, Finnstown, Lucan, Co. Dublin

Artwork Description: Inspired by the scientific theory The Buttterfly Effect, this image reflects on how small changes (such as the flapping of wings by a butterfly) can lead to large scale changes over time and can change the course of the universe. Global warning affects us all. Ice sheets are melting, weather patterns are changing causing droughts, flooding, hurricanes etc, greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow, and sea levels are rising. If everyone makes a small effort to address global warming at local level – the cumulative effect can cause a tidal wave of change, leading to positive transformation.
