Insects among Us looks at cultural practices that emerge from encounters between humans and insects. Drawing from methods of insect observation and the history of entomology, our project considers conditions of visibility from an ontological perspective. The fragility of our shared lifeworld becomes manifest through visual and audio installations based on techniques derived from the study of insects.
