A fruit fly‘s pair of eyes, magnified to monumental proportions, observes the visitors standing in front of a large map of the world made up of thousands of crystalline points of light. Each movement awakes the crystals and the body outlines blend in with abstracted images from satellite television. The result is a close-up and distant view, with the insect eye turning into an allegory of a varied perception through the lenses of photo, mobile phone and TV cameras.
