De-Extinction, 2014
Film, colour, stereo sound
Duration 12:38 min

The film is made with motion control cameras that capture microscopic images of a piece of amber – fossilized tree resin which holds the remains of living things intact for 30 millions of years. Apparently moving through the material, the cameras focus on insects, examining their suspended bodies.

In the next space, live insects, descendants of the same species captured in the film De-Extinction (2014), are active in a new environment.
