This series of over-sized fabric cockroaches was inspired by my desire to depict creation myths from different cultures. The myths were so complicated and rich that they really needed to be told. Each cockroach speaks, telling it's origin story as it may have witnessed it in the beginning. To hear the voice of each cockroach one would press the letter on it's back.

All made from: Fabric, poly-cotton stuffing, paper, mohair yarn and digital recorder
