    frozen moth – nikki coulombe 

    after spending time at the temporary ice rink earlier this evening i felt this appropriate. how foreign the idea of a frozen moth seems. this is nikki’s website.

      OH MY GOD I used to have a costume that was totally just like this; it had golden shit along the trim of the wings and was gold/yellow fabric across them and it had a little hat that was kinda like a yarmulke but with antennae sticking out of it. Technically it was a butterfly costume by with suits that vague I’m not sure it really matters. If it is still at my ‘rents next time I visit I’m totally bringing it down for you.

    appleworm – satanstompingcaterpillars 

    before black moth super rainbow became black moth super rainbow they were satanstompingcaterpillars. i think that the album this song is on (the autumn kaleidoscope got changed) got released under both aliases but more formally as bmsr in 2009. in other words the caterpillar metamorphosed into a moth though maybe they’re missing the middle part – pupa please.

    the apple worm is not really a worm but the caterpillar of the codling moth (cydia pomonella of the tortricidae family) which, judging by the name of the family it is under, sounds bad. and it is –  a fairly widespread and serious pest even here in new zealand. but there are some good controls out and about. the better ones seem to not be synthetic/chemical sprays but alternative/organic forms of control such as pheromone disruption so that they get confused and do not mate. there is also introducing its nemesis – the wasp – to the situation. it lays eggs in the moths’ eggs. gross but works apparently.  and introduction of viruses which attack only the codling and other things which sound scary. so everything is somewhat under control despite having to kind of impose ourselves within these parts of the eco-system quite dramatically. anyway, listen to the track and click here.

    moth – dave mckean 

    a very interesting piece of work. i’m not really sure how to go about it. what sticks out to me is the cyclic nature of the materials and the relationships between which results in some to and fro action. this is maybe why i am kind of confused. the receiver becomes a moth, concerning the repetitive and therefore redundant movements of the moth (generally speaking), when encountering this work (like the arm that transforms into moths within the work) or maybe it’s just me. overall i enjoy the kind of comic yet twisted nature. the composition is also quite aesthetically magnetic. i am actually drawn to the light.
