Fiach MacHale

'Untitled (origami butterflies)'
Zoology Department, Trinity College

Upon entering Trinity College’s Zoology Department, one is greeted by all manner of fascinating natural specimens. Alongside these can be found Fiach MacHale’s installation which comprises a selection of origami butterflies folded according to different sets of instructions the artist found on the internet.

The piece echoes the variety in similar organisms in nature and the vivid colours reflect the continuous adaptations of life through natural selection.
