Moth balls

Just before I go to bed after a evening of rigorous number-crunching and a day of trying to show a Japanese exchange student with little English how to bind a book...

Here's some shots from The Moth and Butterfly Symposium:

THE ART

moth4
A huge texta drawing! Gorgeously eye-hurtingly colourful when you stand in front of it.

moth3
Fastiduously cut-out paper insects, arranged over a lot of wall.

moth2
Very beautiful paper objects. I thought they were constructed from prints of feather close-ups, but they are prints of magnified bits of moths then constructed into shapes.

moth5
A very hard work to photograph, but very nice to be next to. Fairy-winged thing at door of birdcage is sending weird stamen down towards miniature dog and fake grassy knoll at bottom of ladder. Dreamlike.

moth6
VERY weird alien object which was like a meaty cocoon with a fang at the end hanging from a tree limb. It glistened and seemed to throb (without moving) and it freaked Dean out, but not so much that he wouldn't pose his hand with it.

THE PEOPLE

moth1
One angle of the gallery

moth7
Steev being a mad moth scientist, and he didn't even need to act :)

moth8
Mad moth scientist being paranoid about insects and handing out moth balls in little scrotular bags.

moth10
Worshipping at the shrine of the Bogong moth.

moth9
The strange cast of a strange moth Happening. I think the dude on the left is a Bogan moth.

'Night all.

Bogan moth? Didn't know whether to laugh or cry :)
