Abstract
Kaleidoscopic videos of moths and their wing patterns are projected onto solar-powered reflective tents and nearby buildings to attract both moths and curious people. Native plants and other sutiable food sources for pollinators are presented in self contained mobile gardens. The accompanying 18' solar powered "ArtLab" acts as the stage for these interactive public engagements providing hands-on activities and information on a broad range of environmental topics. The Moth Project focuses on ecological literacy and empowers audiences through citizen science and backyard naturalism that can lead to new conversations and civic action.
