When it comes to pollination, bees get most of the credit. But when the sun goes down, the humble moth has been diligently working the late shift without a lick of the glory. Tonight from 6 to 9 p.m., the artists of Plantbot Genetics demonstrate their portable Garden Moth Machine at the PXSTL site across the street from the Pulitzer Arts Foundation (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or during the Marfa Dialogues program. The machine uses solar power to project kaleidoscopic videos of moth wings onto highly reflective tents in order to attract moths to a variety of plants ready and waiting to be pollinated. Admission is free.
