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.
