WHERE THEY FALL

This project explores the limits of compassion. Bugs, which are often seen as pests, and quickly killed with contempt were selected as the main focus.  The fragile bodies are shown tangled and engulfed by webs below kitchen windows, drowned by water in bathroom sinks, and stuck behind automobile glass. There is a sense of sympathy and sorrow for these creatures regardless of their size. Bugs may appear physically small, miniscule, or insignificant, nonetheless they are bodies that share moments of time as living beings just as humans equally do. This ability to see something as equal to oneself, and establish a sense of compassion resonate with the ideas expressed by Kafka’s Metamorphosis, and Albert Schweitzer who said, “Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.”
