Carlos Amorales Creates Swirling Clouds of Darkness With Black Paper Moths


In 2007 and 2009, Mexico City-based artist Carlos Amorales created two huge installations, both entitled Black Cloud. The works positioned thousands of paper black moths on walls and atria, forming a swirl of darkness. Each moth was a replica of one of 36 different species. The end result of each work contains an overwhelming force that evokes biblical overtones. See more images of Black Cloud after the jump. (via)
