This is an accordion book that folds up between the metal plates of a harmonica. The instrument, a vintage "Butterfly" brand harmonica, inspired me to create this piece. The panels are made from transparent mylar, cut black paper, tarletan cloth, and sheet music. Light passes through the wings of the butterflies when displayed near a window or other light source.
