    magic lantern – mat collishaw 

    this is a site specific work commissioned by the v and a museum to show off the building and its cultural significance. it was between moths and bats and this time the moths won (in the past there has been limited success and not to mention one of batman’s rivals killer moth). collishaw animated the moth to light scenario on a very large-scale and with primitive technology making a ten metre zoetrope. it seems  a very epic work and this epic nature seems quite conflicted with the nature of moths. there are limited videos of this thing in action so i guess it’s a case of you need to be there in person to truly appreciate or criticise. in saying that following is a recording of the miniature version then a link to the making of video:

    MOTH – hilton carter

    this short film is flashy and not really moth-related as the title was used instead of ‘man on the hill’ but i can still see some relevance as i feel that light has been employed as a particularly useful device and we all know how moths do like the light especially in various art forms and literature.

    loom – polynoid 

    very nice computery stuff going on. and also very appropriate sound design (by Joel Corelitz) through the use of synthetic noise material which is synchronised with the events seen. from about 2’45” or the death of the moth it is all very cool.
