Two subjects would be released in a squared room, a moth and a human being. Both would be tracked and follow by a light. Perhaps the moth would be followed by a less brighter light or with no light at all. The light would go off it they stop moving. It is important to keep in mind that moths like or follow light and some humans are afraid of moths.

The original idea was to release a moth and a human being in a squared room. Both were going to be tracked and the human was going to be followed by light. I wanted to play with the fear induced by the moth to the human and so that the human would be in the position of the moth, having that feeling of being trapped.  
If the moth stands still no light would be on this would probably make the human feel fear for he would not know where the moth is. He would then move and the moth would probably start following him in search of light. The human would experience a sort of state of surveillance and fear, he would have no escape, just like the moth in the essay.

The essay basically speaks about a moth trapped in a window. Since in the lab we are working with movement and we cannot record or track the moth yet

Inspiration

The Death of a Moth by Vrigina Woolf

The essay is about an afternoon in which Virginia was watching a Moth trapped in a window-pane, with no escape. At the beginning she talks about how a moth is not as gracious as a butterfly nor as somber as some other moths that prefer to go out at night. The moth in particular is enjoying its flight in the afternoon, in the sun light though it is about to be gone. At the end, I understand, she deserves to die for the night is coming.

Idea

The original idea was to release a moth and a human being in a squared room. Both were going to be tracked and the human was going to be followed by light. I wanted to play with the fear induced by the moth to the human and so that the human would be in the position of the moth, having that feeling of being trapped.

The essay basically speaks about a moth trapped in a window. Since in the lab we are working with movement and we cannot record or track the moth yet

Possibilities

- Light and darkness, shadows in between.

- Natural surveillance.

- Life and death.

- Fear.

- The movement of the moth could be appreciated.

- A continuos dancing between both subjects.
