Hello Mr. Silvio Lee
(
Asian long-horned beetle
)

One bite, two bites, slowly eating food

 

 When I first met him 

I thought I was dancing. 

Slowly 

a nodding head 

a noble angle 

slowly savoring food 

It was a performance in itself.

The above story is a project that I started experimenting with in the Benetton Research Residency.

 
700 million years ago, humans and other beings evolved from one root.

 

I started this project because we wondered if we could remember

 

the language we communicated in the past, even though we were

 

subdivided into our own languages and behaviors.  

 We started an experiment by making a hypothesis that he might have

been a neighbor who was talking to a little ant that was passing under

 

his feet 700 million years ago. 

I tried a lot of different ways to talk to insects, and you can see the record

 

through the green button above.

This project wanted to talk about the boundaries between others and

 

individuals through the process of trying and understanding conversations

 

with other beings. 

 

I hope it will be a time to expand yourself through the process of talking to

 

insects and becoming friends.
