UP_2_U: Moth Cinema
The silver screen suspended above is illuminated at night after sunset. The beam of light shines over the plantings, attracting moths, and casting dramatic shadows as they play out their nightly dramas of love, survival and cross-species seduction.
Moth Cinema displays and amplifies the presence of moths, and our success in creating healthy habitat for their benefit, and ultimately ours. Moths are valuable pollinators that provide critical connections in our networked urban ecology. The habitat, containing tasty provisions, host and nectar plants, demonstrates an alternative to the moth-hostile light-polluted urban environments we have created.
These Socratic moth celebrities become leading lights guiding us towards a healthy and bio diverse urban ecosystem – one upon which our own health critically depends.
