The butterfly effect by Vasile Stan

Currently unavailable for purchase

Featured in The Patchwork

The phrase (butterfly effect) refers to the idea that a butterfly’s wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado or delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado in a certain location.
The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale alterations of events. Had the butterfly not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different. While the butterfly does not cause the tornado, the flap of its wings is an essential part of the initial conditions resulting in a tornado.

    This is what a martian sees through his Halloween mask. Leave it to you to try and disguise it as the well-known butterfly effect!
    Amazing technique, very original. And like your other shot, let see more!
