When you take a close look at a beer can, you may notice that they have a really nice arc to them. Artist Paul Villinski [1] has taken that same arc and turned it into butterflies in flight.  Rescuing crushed beer cans from the streets of New York City [2], Williams carefully cuts each can and creates a marvelous fluttering array. He states that similar to the life of a butterfly, his process is representative of a cultural conversion all its own exploring “themes of transformation and recovery through metamorphosis.”
