Comment Film Info & Credits
Mass Transit features the time-lapse and live action video of forest tent caterpillars shot in May 2014. The film features insects following pheromone trails painted on paper by the filmmakers. Though driven by instinct, the caterpillars nevertheless express individual behaviours, speeds and directions. Busily following trails that ultimately circle back on themselves, their movements remind us of the commutes taken daily by millions through the city.
