Transverse Orientation unfolds in the space between two allegories taken from the Moth. On the one hand, the idea of radical transformation: Moths undergo metamorphosis, becoming beings that don’t remotely resemble their previous incarnation. On the other hand, the idea of a mysterious source of distant guidance (or distraction); In travel, Moths find their orientation by keeping a fixed angle on a distant source of light.
