Default The Hastings Moth Project

A few months ago, when I was visiting the local Children's Library.

[digression]Don't ignore the children's section of libraries and bookshops. There are a lot of highly talented writers working in the field. Series you might want to try are Time Riders by Alex Scarrow (time travel sci-fi), Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy (modern setting dark fantasy with a wry sense of humour), Hell's Underground by Alan Gibbons (Horror. First book is called Scared to Death) and Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve (post apocalyptic sci-fi, but long after so civilization rebuilt on different lines)[/digression]
I saw this on a nearby wall.



After some investigation I found out that this was part of the Hastings Moths Project an urban art project. Essentially, the setup is simple. They put a stencil on a wall that has been discoloured by pollution and use a high-pressure hose to "clean" the area within the stencil. Unlike more traditional graffiti, removing it would simply involve cleaning the rest of the wall in the same way.

There are 7 sites in total and I managed to track them all down and take my own pictures as follows.

Old Town


Town Centre


North end of Town


Hidden Back Street


Bowling Green Hut


Sea Front


In the conception, the execution and the look, this is the sort of art I love.

Cool! When they started 'glassfibering' my neighbourhood they placed hearts, made in the same way, everywhere on the streets and on buildings. The company that lays the fibers is called 'glashart' which means 'glass heart'

I love this concept! They should do something similar in my city but use images of trees instead (since London, Ontario is known as the Forest City). Good job Step, tracking down all of the sites, just like a good adventure gamer! (It reminds me of the later games in the Myst series that have built-in cameras to take snapshots of things or places containing clues needed to solve a puzzle!)

I wish they did more stuff like that here. Helsinki has a couple paintings on walls, but the rest of Finland is just full of ugly blocks of turd basically*. I hate the complete lack of artistic and aesthetic vision we have here.

*) Obviously not all, but everything from the 50's to 90's and almost everything from the 90's forward. Some exceptions there though luckily, mainly in Helsinki and such.

Well, once I'd found the secret treasure map it was mostly easy. The tricky two to find were "Sea Front" (which is only visible at certain times of day) and "Hidden Back Street" (where the map location arrow is in slightly the wrong place)

For other local street art, see this pub frontage.



The local council originally wanted this painted over as an advertisement in a conservation area (they relented under public pressure). The latter is incorrect (there are buildings in the area subject to conservation orders but this isn't one of them). The former is a bit odd given that this is the actual frontage of the pub, which already had signs outside advertising it as a pub.

By contrast this is the same council that issued the following statement when a Banksy appeared in town

Maybe my understanding of the term zero-tolerance is faulty. I thought that meant no flexibility and no exceptions. But someone paints their own front wall and watch out.
