A CATERPILLAR IS CURLED IN A GREEN RING
4K video, sound
A caterpillar is curled in a green ring touches upon the ways in which insects navigate man-made environments, and subsequently, how our own senses and behaviour are affected by these constructions. For this project, I am gathering auditory and visual impressions of insects that live in metropolitan areas. The repetition and rhythm of insects’ sounds can be perceived as machine-like. I will try to mimic these sounds so that environmental sounds blend with artificial ones and balance on the brinks of the natural and the man-made. I will also focus on the description of animal vocalisations in language/literature, for example in the form of onomatopoeic renditions.
This project is possible thanks to the Mondriaan Fonds.
