Project statement.

This project concentrates on a small group of insects that have inspired myth and lore throughout the ages. Myth and lore can help bind communities and cultures with tales of morality but can also be used to control the population by exploiting their fear of God and the natural forces. The insect becomes the protagonist in a much larger narrative with metaphors of transformation, spirituality, and the ability to communicate between worlds.
