the butterfly effect, chaos and order intertwined

"Book of Life by David Kracov is wonderful result of artistic brilliance and philanthropy. 'David Kracov was commissioned to create an award to be given in honor of, and named for, Rabbi Yossi Raichik, the beloved director of Chabad's Children of Chernobyl'. Inspired by the life of Rabbi Yossi Raichik; the sculpture is a book 'filled with words from those he touched, with those pages and thoughts transforming into butterflies, each representing the 2.547 children he helped and give new lives'."

"The phrase, the butterfly effect, originally coined by the mathematician Edward Lorenz, relates to the chaos theory, that a butterfly flapping its wings in South America, can cause a change in weather throughout the East Coast."

Another butterfly book, this time by Julie Cockburn, whose art
also embraces that interesting union of chaos and order.
