46 Missed Manicures considers the butterfly effect of complex systems, that is to say, how a single incident can have vast, unpredictable effects. The work explores the instigating event from the periphery, exposing at once some of the human-scale consequences of a catastrophic event that are often swamped by the endless replay of mass-media imagery and our tireless appetite for statistical data and public survey results.
