    “Virtue of Blue” chandelier by Dutch artist and designer, Jeroen Verhoeven. Cut and created from five hundred sapphire-blue photovoltaic cells, these ‘solar’ butterflies collect solar energy during the day, to produce light during the night.Image Source homegarden-news.blogspot.com

    VIRTUE OF BLUE _ Show in collaboration with Blain Southern gallery "THE CURIOUS IMAGE" London Dering Street 12 May–16 July 2011. Powered by its own solar energy. A chandelier which playfully explores an economy of light through innovative materials. Powered by sapphire-blue solar panel cells, the piece is intrinsically self-sustaining as it absorbs the energy of daylight to fuel its own illumination. The cells have been cut into the shapes of four different breeds of butterfly and these seem to flutter around a central flame-like hand-blown glass bulb, their iridescent wings glinting in the light. The semiotics of this design are highly significant as the butterflies become signifiers of the light’s self-sufficiency; physically, these insects also power their own bodies, using their wings to absorb the rays of the sun, in turn raising and sustaining their own body temperatures to that which is necessary for their survival. material: multicrystalline silicon, 500 butterflies dimensions: 1440 x 1440 x 1620 mm photo: Bas Helbers
