    two moths caught 

    these two were captured at the orkney library and archive. not entirely sure whether it is a photograph or a scan/photocopy. mentally working out what exactly it is but that’s kind of half the fun and i do still like the composition of the image. somewhat alien sort of feel to it. the original blog post is available here.

    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.

    moth – darlene delbecq 

    a photograph from some of darlene’s all using the mirror effect which if you have a mac you may be familiar with yet not familiar with these sorts of results. so dreamy even the sports stuff. there’s a nice little write-up here.

    moths of long exposure 

    A lovely photograph of what looks like a couple swirls when we get down to it really but it is a moth being chased and eaten by a bat. Found at the wake forest university website, the biology department of which is very enthusiastic about the subjects of the photograph above. even though it is a somewhat novel technique, it is nice to see it used photographing things other than stars and traffic such as a moth’s erratic movements. it is a way better idea. nonlinearity really stands out to me here (perhaps i have watched the cartoons here too many times – such as this one – and forget about these things). chronologically it is not concerned with a to b or moth to flame (or rather moth to bat) and it is also less about the subjects specifically (they are just swirls) which makes it more about the overriding form or life of the moth.

    the above photograph inspired the moth trails collection. the one below is a photo from that collection:
