Someday I Will Be as Insignificant as a Swarm of Summer Insects is comprised of twelve pieces of paper that work as a meditation on the inevitable. Each page contains one word from the above title and like the Killing Season each page is covered to a greater or lesser extent with insects but in this case the insect is not an actual creature but the word insect written in small exacting print. The word insect becomes something of a design element that weaves its way through the words and pages. The act of writing this word thousands of times is a kind of labor and rumination on our plight to find meaning and significance.
