Moth Mandala Murals
Using photos we collected nationwide, we workshop with local communities to create wheat past moth murals. At first glance, these bright-colored murals seem festive and remind the viewer of meditative mandalas. However, on closer examination, the patterns in the design become apparent. Each mandala is created from multiple large photographs of moths.
These bright, playful large installations invite everyone to learn about the importance and beauty of insects. The great details, colors, and patterns also function as survival tactics.
Participants create wheat-paste moth murals using large printed photos collected from national mothing workshops with local communities. These collaborative events complete a beautiful wall installation and draw connections between personal action and ecological issues of vital importance to humans and pollinators alike.
