And what happens when you touch the MOTH moths? They sense your touch electronically and begin to flap their eight-foot silken wings: the longer you touch, the more powerful the movement. A fitting personification of the forward-looking spirit of the University of Colorado at Boulder's ultra-modern ATLAS Center for Arts, Media and Performance, where they're currently on view (and ready to be touched), the massive moths will flutter in the lobby through February 15. In addition, Lewin will give a free lecture on February 1 at 3 p.m. in ATLAS's Cofrin Auditorium, and a Valentine's Day MOTH Celebration, with music and refreshments, will take place at 4:30 p.m. February 14.
ATLAS is on campus, at 1125 18th Street in Boulder; for more information, log on to www.colorado.edu/atlas.
