Juxtaposing two contradicting feelings interpreting death and beyond, the video features ants in the process of consuming the dead body of a dragon fly, while the body whirls in circles like a dervish, embracing the fact of reincarnation.

The VO is an audio mix of narrative TV talk shows discussing concepts of citizenship, fundamentalism and social awareness.. along side sound effects of marching steps.
