Mothman: art or food?
Posted in the Arts Forum
#1 Jan 31, 2013
In the Steven Spielberg film "Jurassic Park" (1993), the science-fiction concept story of human beings replicating actual dinosaurs using the genetic material of fossilized dinosaurs is explored.
While this activity is virtually impossible, the idea behind it is not absurd: can species be changed or mimicked?
Evolutionary biologists know that animals change their phenotypes during their lifetimes, altering their genotypes (and hence genetic codes) due to environmental pressures. Artists know that human beings enjoy dressing up as animal spirits (i.e., wolves, cats, owls, etc.) for the disguise festival of Halloween.
So there are distinct observances of species transformations and animal mimicry that are evidently recorded in history.
Do these realities reflect the published fancy mythologies of the cryptic creature the Mothman, a seemingly giant half-human, half-moth creature that is rumored to be wandering and terrorizing citizens of North America?
Does the haunting Mothman reflect the art value of sensory ravenous consumer-based franchises such as Planet Hollywood?
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
