Twitter Bot Generates Imaginary Moths

mothgenerator10

Lovely project by artists Loren Schmidt and Katie Rose Pipkin. Moth Generator (@mothgenerator) is a Twitter account that creates fantastical moths by combining randomly selected segments and colours of insect bodies. They even come complete with whimsical, faux nomenclatures like The Catskin Soybean (diella mulcanus) or Graceful-Infant Moth (maripatra incivia). More images below.
