Moth conversations

Art & Energy will be in residence for 2 days at Torre Abbey Museum doing research and development on a new solar powered artwork that celebrates our Devon moth species.

The aim of Moth conversations is to exchange knowledge about Torbay moths, especially those that live around Torre Abbey and (weather permitting) will be viewing moths on the evening of the 9th.

The artists are looking forward to meeting moth-ers from the bay, so please do come and share your knowledge, moth stories and your ideas for the design the solar panel artwork.

We are grateful for support from:

  • Ian Hankey at The Fab Lab Plymouth for helping us build the frame

  • LOF Solar for supplying us with colourful solar cells

  • The Solar Range for their help with the electronics in the artwork and

  • GB-Sol for helping us laminate our solar panel artworks

Suitable for all. No booking required.
