Appearances 2017 GypsyGather

Last summer we lived with and learned the life cycle of the gypsy moths that invaded our woods. The piece I installed today around a lone tree in Dunes Edge Campground for Appearances Provincetown is an abstraction of all the stages--larva, pupae, fluttering males and  females born unable to fly, heavy with eggs. The materials are ceramic, mostly off-casts gathered to recycled from another project and mylar, which if the rainstorm tomorrow  doesn't bring it all down, will survive to catch your eye with fluttering light catching movement.
