Based in New York, artist Tasha Lewis has embarked on an interactive project that aims to brighten up our world.

The artist has created 4,000 blue magnetic butterflies and will send them in packs of 400 to 10 groups of people around the world—she hopes that the recipients of these insects will use them to decorate all seven continents.

Apart from the butterflies, these packages will also contain a how-to guide, a repair kit and a notebook—participants are required to place these butterflies around their neighborhood, take photos of them and share them on social media before sending them to the next recipient.

Lewis hopes to gather all these images and exhibit them once she is done with the project.

If you would like to help her out, you can head on over to Swarm The World—isn’t this a lovely project?
