About the artwork

This was an exhibition of photographs of insects enlarged to human size. The artist collected local insects and worked on the project over the course of one year. Parts that are invisible to the naked eye showed up vividly, such as the details of a dragonfly’s wings or the scales of a butterfly, allowing visitors to grasp the beauty and variety of figures. Facing the creatures on an equal footing in nature provides a new viewpoint towards the nature that surrounds us.
