Tomoko Take was an Artist in Residence with Fermynwoods during 2012 and created a part documentary and part fictional film revealing people’s relationships to the rare and highly elusive Purple Emperor Butterfly, which lepidopterists travel for miles to catch sight of in Fermyn Woods.

The film was installed at the Skylark Cafe at Fermyn Woods Country Park.

Tomoko is a Japanese artist based in Amsterdam and her films poetically explore connections between people and place.
