Cocoon: Pupal casing made by moths, site of transformation. If one wanted, one could make ill-advised metaphor for grad school. 12 moth cocoons were placed in a glass terrarium in Polyphemus’ Cave. There is no significance to the number twelve. The cocoons were expensive and it seemed a reasonable number. Throughout the duration of Scott Klinger’s thesis exhibition the moths hatched on their own accord and schedule yet miraculously coinciding at regular intervals throughout the duration of the show. This was hoped for and intended for, but in no way controlled. One female moth hatched at approximately 6:15 pm, 15 minutes into the opening of the exhibition. She promptly found a stick and climbed to the top of it to unfold her wings. Several humans were there to witness it and can verify this although Scott does not have photo documentation. It was viewed by the artist as evidence of the existence of magic in a metaphorical understanding of the term.
