Herding Insects
Mixed Media, 2006

Although I don't give these cases titles when I exhibit them (so that people will be more free to create their own narratives), I have given them the titles that are in my own head in this website. The idea of herding insects (like herding cats) is marvelously absurd, and suggests the human obsession with controlling nature and especially avoiding creepy-crawly things. I love insects, and the bugs I've made out of wood really charm me.
