A fake museum/gallery installation, exhibiting artificial species.

A pseudo exhibition case encloses fireflies from the Colombian Amazon, on woollen 'lianas' (tropical vines) that have densely overpopulated their exhibition case. The work is live interactive video (the fireflies) with sculpture (the lianas made from german wool and indian jute), accompanied by an original soundscape recorded deep in the Colombian Amazon.
