Be it a visual art or curatorial assignment, writing books, articles, film, play or poetry, my work hinges on the butterfly-effect: if a butterfly flaps its wings in Peking, it may trigger a tornado in Pennsylvania. Changing one small thing may change everything. And not just in meteorology or chaos theory. The shape of the butterfly resembles the shape of the brain: an image, an installation, a piece of creative work, an engaged gaze or even a supposedly absent-minded side-glance – each a potential flap of a butterfly. A change in the making.
