No dia 15 de Abril de 2015, Josephine Witt, ativista “free-lancer”, interrompe a conferência de imprensa do Banco Central Europeu (BCE) atirando ao seu presidente, Mario Draghi, confettis e panfletos. Essa intervenção, desde o momento em que a activista se levanta da primeira fila até ser levada pelos seguranças, durou 23 segundos. As fotografias feitas pelos jornalistas presentes na sala vão circular durante as próximas 24 horas nas redes sociais, televisões e imprensa do mundo inteiro. Esta publicação é um ensaio visual experimental de Patrícia Almeida, baseado nas imagens fotográficas desse evento encontradas na Internet.

O título "Today, I am just a butterfly sending you a sentence" é uma citação do manifesto de Josephine Witt contra o BCE.
