"Peppered Moths" by Jessica Roux
– Hiding in Plain Sight –
Camouflage features seventy international illustrators and designers who are pulling off the veil on the concept of what it means to be invisible. Artists created work exploring the concepts of blending in, assimilating, and adapting to their surroundings. Whatever the reason, we're constantly in hiding in one way or another. The art of camouflage spans the political, aesthetic, scientific, magical, psychological and social realms. The Camouflage Exhibition is on display May 26th - July 14th, 2017.

About this piece:
Almost all the peppered moths were light-colored, flecked with black spots, well-camouflaged against the trees and lichens they landed on, until the Industrial Revolution in England. The trees became blackened by the pollutants and soot in the air during this time period, and the darker peppered moths flourished because they could now blend into the trees. Since then, the light colored peppered moths have become common once more, due to the improved air quality. They once again blend into their environment.
