Caterpillar’s Longing is Poetic Kinetics’ Coachella 2015 art project. It encompasses two pieces, Papilio Merraculous (the caterpillar), and Desiderium Eruca (the butterfly). Together they create one piece symbolizing the social appetites of our youth in the journey of self-discovery and personal transformation, turning an eye to the everyday miracles we so frequently take for granted.
