Moths; Day and Night

Anna Ruth curator of Akkigalleria, in Jyväskylä, Finland, invited us to create an exhibition in a disused shop during  Live Herring ’14 Festival.

We collaborated  with Jussi Paivinen, a research scientist, environmental conservationist and butterfly enthusiast who works at  Metsähallitus, to run a workshop at The Waldorf Steiner school.  We installed many films in the gallery including those of Professor Malcolm Burrows showing moths jumping, captured at 10,000 frames per second, my film Little Skipper and a painted with light film that Emily and I had created earlier in the month.

During the opening we invited visitors to make drawings with light using LEDs and bike lights using long exposures.
