A 5-Minute Hour

Irene Moon and the Begonia Society are part of the 2nd episode of GX Jupitter-Larsen's new online variety show, A 5-Minute Hour. We include a 1-minute Microtheter on various insects and other invertebrates. These are coming once a week from his studio and Irene Moon will be part of the next four (and hopefully more)!

The Macroptheter is small theater, generally filmed under a microscope and the actors are those that are more difficult to see.

Art of the Insect Collection

As part of the recent exhibition "In Collaboration with Earth" at the Glass Box Gallery (UC Santa Barbara),  I presented a series of museum specimens with related artifacts. The first drawer of insects is all regional bees to Santa Barbara, California. The second drawer focuses on the Western Monarch. Discussion and Microtheater about the insect boxes were performed live during the exhibition and can be revisited on Facebook. In short, the insects are the stars!
