Moths explores the hedonistic tendencies of human desire and our consequential susceptibility to lust after an ideal that, in truth, may not be worthy of such effort. The piece hopes to inquire after the sources of true fulfillment; perhaps our communal quest for beauty need not be as a moth consumed by its flame. –Vivien Fergusson
