Gone? is a short computer generated film about revival and hope, with a flock of elegant butterflies in slow motion.
The video from Elyarch is being used by the Natural History Museum in London to draw attention to their forthcoming event called Sensational Butterflies. Alessandro Giusti, Curator of Lepidoptera, gave the filmmakers a little help with their project at last September’s Science Uncovered event. It’s become a nice allegory for him of the Museum’s project to digitise their own collections to give them new life (see in his latest blog post: http://bit.ly/NHM-An-encouraging-message).
Sensational Butterflies opens on the Museum’s East Lawn on 2 April. Tickets are on sale now: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/sensational-butterflies
