Bagworms, fabric, HD video, inkjet print


This is a series of works based on the experiment of taking scraps of material from women’s clothing and giving them to bagworms to use for making their protective cases.
Male bagworms leave their protective cases when they become adults, turning into moths. However female bagworms remain in their protective cases for their whole lives, waiting for the male bagworms. The gender issue is meant to have changed in our generation, so I wonder why women still make much more effort than men concerning their appearance.
Cutting pieces of colored paper into fine strips and giving them to bagworms to use for making their protective cases is a traditional pastime that Japanese children have enjoyed over the years.
