Humans have long felt the urge to decorate their homes with keepsakes and mementoes, but also to express their style and to display affluence. The decoration on the wasps’ nest has been hand block printed with lino in a similar way that wallpaper may be made for our use. Marketing and advertising encourages us to constantly change and renew furnishings etc keeping up with current trends. This also produces a huge consumption and waste cycle leading to landfill, energy usage and climate change issues which affect the other species existing alongside us. The delicacy of the wasps’ nests reflects the fragile balance of ecosystems, easily destroyed.
(No wasps were harmed or unhoused in the making of this work)
