On the Wings of Freedom
The Wertheimpark bathes in the glow of a radiant cloud of butterflies, hundreds of which hover above the ground in continuous ,upward flight. On the Wings of Freedom is an interactive artwork conceived by Italian design studio Aether & Hemera.
The butterfly as a symbol for a quick transformation is twofold for this installation. On the Wings of Freedom is about the way in which the pervasiveness of technology is changing our society and how little we realize it. Think about it: we can manipulate the flight of these butterflies, their color and the patterns of light with just a few clicks on our smartphones.
