A silent video, a dead ant in a glass tube and a sheet on paper with organic fluid stains on which the ant died.

On a spring day, I noticed that several ants were invading my living room. Then I noticed an ant that seemed to move very slowly : obviously, it was dying. I have a special relationship with death and I felt that I had to film its death, which was very slow. It was a really moving moment. Many thoughts came to my mind: Is it suffering? Does it realize what is happening ? Should I kill it ? Of course these thoughts brought me back to my own mortality. It results in a touching video, imbued with a certain beauty.
