About The Moth Migration Project


The Moth Migration Project founded by Hilary Lorenz, 2016,  is a crowd-sourced collection of hand printed, drawn and cut paper moths exhibited in multi-sensory installation.

Choosing moths, a nocturnal pollinator, as the vehicle for cross-pollination and international exchange,  I invite people to create paper moths native to your geographic location. The moths become a symbol of the global network currently with over 15,000 submissions from 26 countries. The MMP creates a spirit more significant than any single community by fostering authentic connections and engaging public participation through a synergy of shared experience and embracing mutual respect for personal uniqueness and creativity.
