“Taking insects into consideration brings joy. A passion for the infinitely small is a precaution against an infinitely average existence.
For the insect lover, a puddle of water becomes Tanganyika, a pile of sand takes on the dimensions of Takla-Makan, a piece of scrub becomes Mato Grosso. To penetrate the geography of the insect is to finally give grasses the dimension of a world.”
