Butterlygram in Color is grid composed of six photograms originally made as analog color prints. To make these photograms, Matthew Moore used butterflies in the same way that a film is used in traditional photography: light passing through the butterfly wings was used to expose photographic paper. The prints in this edition are scanned reproductions of the original photographs.

Author: The butterflygram evolved from my interest in the way humans learn to interact with animals at a young age. I found it strange that there is an entire network of so called “science” companies out there that sell ant-farms and sea-monkey kits to children, fostering the idea that it’s OK to treat animals like a toy as long as its in the name of education. What it really teaches children is that humans are the dominate species and that animals can be owned and used for amusement. The images in this series, entitled Collections, are my way of simulating and aestheticizing some of these childhood activities. This way the viewer has the opportunity to revisit the experiences from their own youth, and perhaps form a new opinion.

Todd: Matthew’s butterflygram is among the most accessible photographs from his new Collections project. The photogram process he has used to aestheticize what was originally a somewhat kitschy and morbid butterfly taxidermy collection has given these creatures a new life; a sort of second metamorphosis. As the butterflies seem to dissolve into the background, they have a spiritual quality, which I think makes them seem even more ephemeral and mysterious than they were when alive.

Honza: I don't question the concept and ideas behind Matt's “Butterflygram” that the artist and my colleague Todd mention. However, what I also like about this photo is that it can work on it's own as an aesthetic object with no need for any explanation. And that's not considered commonplace in contemporary conceptual art.
