To wit, Sawako Nakayasu's installation, Insect Country C, will be constructed at LACE from August 27-September 19; more info below. But as part of such installation, Sawako had canvassed the universe with the question of "what are ant-sized objects". The answers -- very intriguing -- can be seen HERE. Moi is No. 77 of the so far over 400 responses.

I often enjoy Sawako's work -- check it out, Los Angeles!

Sawako Nakayasu | August 27-September 19 | INSECT COUNTRY C.
This work is an extension of an ongoing investigation and tutelage under the auspices of the universe as lived by insects, mostly that of the ant variety. Works produced, conducted, performed, committed, or documented thus far include around 100 poems, several performances, a collaborative book defacement, an open poetry studio, two chapbooks, the naming of a non-collective, and numerous other plans. This current incarnation will consist of several ant poems painted or installed on the walls, along with two related performance events.
