Moth Migration – 2nd update

Exhibitions

Sorry I have no pretty pictures today. I have been teaching the last two days and did not have time to print. But I have a new crop of questions that I want to get out. You may have one of these questions on your mind.

Do you want the name of the moths?
Yes, please tell me the moth species. You may write it on the card with your name and address when sending in your moths.

Does my moth have to look exactly like the real thing?
No, not at all, you may take all the liberty you like.

Can I send you 5 different moths?
Yes

Can I send you more than 5?
Yes.  My goal is 40,000 + I am hand printing about 4,000 myself between now and May.  I will print each myself but get help in cutting them out.

Does the paper have to be two sided?
No, it does not. The paper can be just black or white or grey without any detail. It can be detailed on one side or both if you really want to make that,  but it will not be well seen on the bottom. Because I am making several thousand myself, I am using old prints and drawings as my moth paper. I am printing on the “clean” side so there will be texture and marking on the bottom. It is also essentially “free” paper since I already have it.

Does the size you listed 1″ to 6″ include the wings?
Yes, that size is the total for the largest areas of the moth, whether it be the height or the width. That way it will be into an A4 envelope.

What exactly do I need to be a moth ambassador?
Moth Ambassadors are people not living in the US and who would like to gather a group of 5 other people to make moths, but shipping from their country could be cost prohibited. I do not want to deny people the opportunity to participate simply because of postage. Moths must be all packaged together from one location  in an A3 or A4 sized envelope and send international standard mail, no express or special services. Please confirm you want to be a moth ambassador with me. I will need a copy of the the receipt of postage from the post office. (This is for my tax purposes since I am self funding it)  Receipt can be send via email.

As always, I am deeply thankful for your participation and so excited to see how all this will unfold. More photos will come this weekend.

Please email your intention to participate and questions to: mothmigration@gmail.com
