Artist: Liz Dees

 Sponsor: University of Hull


Location: University of Hull, Blackburn Building, HU6 7RX

About the Design:
This moth is based on stealth aircraft, designed to avoid detection using a variety of ‘stealth’ technologies. These technologies reduce reflection/emission of radar, infrared, visible light, radio-frequency spectrum and audio, collectively known as stealth technology. Whilst no aircraft is totally invisible to radar, stealth aircraft make it more difficult for conventional radar to detect or track the aircraft effectively. The moth has been designed to blend into its surroundings, allowing only electro luminescent light to highlight the moth’s shape.
