Part of my Time series for the Hokin Gallery show - Not on Paper.
Each piece represents a different animal that has a unique relationship with time, memory and mortality.
Mayflies have the shortest lifespan of any animal about 24 hours and some species - only a few minutes in their final, hatched, stage. This incredibly short life shows itsself in what appear as swarms for a few days each year.
