Our experience of nature is often constrained by a limited perspective. Blending microscopic and macroscopic worlds with holistic organization, these shorts offer a visual journey that reexamines the ecology of our environment.

Shows human action from the insect's level. A botanical garden is an artificial nature-like installation where each room has its own microclimate. Despite human attempts to control the environment, pests are spreading and eating the plants all over the garden. The gardeners are fighting against the pests with cryptobugs; thousands of ladybirds that are specially bred for killing and imported from abroad. But since cryptobugs alone don’t solve the problem, the gardeners have to rely on the help of an exterminator who kills the pests as well as all the other insects with poisons. As the remedies get harsher, the bystanders will have to face the consequences.
