Bibliodoptera

Bibliodoptera, by Peter Torpey and Elena Jessop, graduate students in Media Arts and Sciences Location: Corridor along the Hayden Library Courtyard (map) A cloud of vellum butterflies, newly emerged from the chrysalis of MIT’s diverse library pages, floats above in the corridor between the Lewis and Hayden Libraries. This installation is an unobtrusive but strikingly beautiful symbol of the guiding knowledge of the arts and humanities that have been developed and pursued at MIT over the last 150 years.
