A caterpillar is curled in a green ring
The repetition and rhythm of insects’ sounds can be perceived as machine-like. Shot in and around Taipei, the video A caterpillar is curled in a green ring unfolds in a series of visual and auditory impressions of insects in a man-made environment. It includes references to the names of insects in Taiwanese sign language and to the repetition that occurs during the process of learning a new tongue.
Many thanks to the team of Bamboo Curtain Studio for their help and to entomologist Liao Yi-Chang for his insect recordings.
This project was possible thanks to the Mondriaan Fonds and Stichting Gerbrandy Cultuurfonds.
