Akkigalleria

Exhibition and workshops Akkigaleria, Finland during Live Herring festival. Tracy & Hobbs installed an exhibition of their films at a pop-up gallery in January 2014, showing ’Water Folk’, ‘Moths: Night’ an experimental film using light drawing, the scientific films of Malcolm Burrows showing Moths jumping as well as ‘Little Skipper’ by Elizabeth Hobbs.

The artists collaborated with Jussi Paivein, a Finnish conservationist, to run an animation workshop exploring moths at The Waldorf Steiner School, Jyväskylä. We worked with year 9 children to make flipbooks and thaumotropes using specimens of Finnish Moths and scientific films by Malcolm burrows. The artists invited visitors and passersby to try drawing with light using torches and LED bulbs and batteries. For more information: www.tracyandhobbs.com/blog/
