I am interested in the life of cicada....

Most cicadas spend most of their 13 and 17 year lives underground. After 13 or 17 years, mature cicada nymphs emerge at any given locality, synchronously and in tremendous numbers. After such a prolonged developmental phase, the adults are active for about 4 to 6 weeks. The males aggregate into chorus centres and attract mates. Within two months of the original emergence, the life cycle is complete, the eggs have been laid and the adult cicadas are gone for another 13 or 17 years.


His work shows "The effect of distorted and false memories on reality" exploring the relationship between identical memories and reality (or time) which are posited on anthropology, psychology, identities, as well as the notion of boundaries, fiction, paradox and reconstruction, together with changes in appearance and the cyclical relationship between birth & death, growth & decay and creation & destruction, for example natural life cycles.

He uses soaked and aged still images, plants, flowers and cicada shells on cotton.
