Taste Black
Taste Black
c-type print
42 x 60cm

A series of photographic works depict butterflies on peoples tongues this phenomena of insects feeding from saliva or resting is changed with other insights. Its a meeting of taste sensors, butterflies ‘taste sensors' are on the bottom of their feet or claspers and so the encounter is one of an invisible sense lost entirely in a c-type print but full of emotive responses. Here the butterfly rests on the tongue of the artist Denis Masi.
