The film by Paul Bush is a playful field trip around English and Swiss museums where the exhibits come to life and reveal their stories. It is a celebration of the chaotic diversity created by our minds and hands. The author also pays homage to the magical eccentricity of museum collections.
More than three thousand insects appear in this film, each for a single frame. As the colours glow and change across their bodies and wings it seems that the genetic programme of millions of years is taking place in a few minutes. It is a rampant creation that seems to defy the explanations of evolutionists and fundamentalists. It is like a mescaline vision dreamt by Charles Darwin.
