at last with cultural institutions, so what to visit is think, is this really the greatest re, poon overall time? see, do food i do for me to art maybe during the time it was created, it was a little on the side of pornography. i imagine it was for some it is pre pornography. yes. when they did up on that that he was supposed to kill. don't say no, not at all. i don't think so because i think porn is an industry that has done for the goal of having an orgasm. and here if there is no oregon, some of the and then all we are very, very sensitive. this video, usually unethical and not very illegal. i think they must do more to make them more interesting before comparing it to art. let's leave to art what is art? photographic it because the, the new day doesn't mean and for no reason relation between noon and pornography leaving the debate about where the ponies off off is poor,
1:31 pm
reaching climax, geology ski off the power. and i'm just going to take another look because, well, you know, want to enjoy the, oh, it's been a hard, you just coming up there which is gone. half are state and evening here. most a nice watching back again at the top of the the the, with
1:32 pm
the use the white sticker 6 or 7 years ago. very rude, previous emergency food can do right now the children, the offspring of these acadias are crawling on me. there are more than $3000.00 species periodicals to caters worldwide they're found on every continent. 1 except
1:33 pm
in arctic, but it's only here in the eastern half of the united states that we have 17 and 13 year periodical k. this part of what makes this so special is this particular breed which we called breed 10 or brewed act, which makes it ever much more mysterious x marks the spot. this is the most widely distributed brood of 17 years to kate. it's gone anywhere on planet earth, all the way from georgia to long island, new york, and west ohio, illinois in indiana. this means that in the eastern half of the united states, we're going to have billions, if not trillions of periodical cicada is interacting with tens of millions of human beings in their back yard. that's going to create some very interesting situation.
1:34 pm
i. oh, i my name is melissa rose. i'm an artist off of long island, new york. and right now we're in south new york that my grandparents old house, this place from my childhood, where i used to run around him, pick up the rocks outside with my grandma, and find bugs and watch the cicadas emerge. and it all really impacted me. and i didn't really realize until i ended up going to art school and pursuing my passion in bio art, which is what i consider myself. i'm a bio artist. i are all. this is my very 1st by alter that i made. i have a few cases that are showcasing this piece and both of them were found on shelter
1:35 pm
with my father. and he took me to the nature preserve that he is working. a lot of the things that have inspired me have been these symbology within the insects that i have found throughout my life time in my childhood that i held onto. and for a while, i kept them in these little boxes in my room, and i was not sure what to do with them until one day it just dawned upon me to make a place of worship for them, and some more were an honor. then the title for naturalists and children's book author and i live right here in chestnut hill and northwest part of philadelphia. so this is my latest coming invasion of the periodical, because i keep the record park to look for the campus.
1:36 pm
and i think i hear a little bit early, but right now i'm looking for nymphs which are underground. next spend their time feeding on tree roots. and then in the spring, they build a little time going up to the surface. often the tunnel will hit the bottom a log and you'll find the cicada right there at the bottom. the log in this neighborhood like this one in rockville with great place to find the k to see the old trees and the lawn. well, i mean, this area hasn't been the serve for a long time, at least not completely disturbed. look at this. well, there's a tunnel. 12345 tunnels under here. they're ready to emerge as soon as the conditions are right. and those conditions include the $64.00 degree foil temperature. after a good rainstorm, when the boil is reached, that temperature will come out by the 1000000. this is my very 1st sketchbook that
1:37 pm
really started off. my interests was cicadas and there symbology. throughout my art . this the cater we actually found in the greek mountains and that was the 1st cicada i ever saw. and it really sparked a lot of inspiration, multiple setting of the shell of the cicada symbolizes the many stages of transformation required of a person before all illusions have been broken and one reaches enlightenment in japanese culture that cicada is seen as a symbol of reincarnation. so they're constantly shutting their skin and leaving behind nothing but empty show. they're also symbolizes evanescence. through their short lifespan. i there's this place on long island, it's called wildwood state park,
1:38 pm
and that's where me and my friends used to go all the time. like growing up in high school and i found a budget cicadas there once, and there was this tree that i found and someone must put a saw in the tree. and it was just stuck like me and my friend trust and we're trying to pull it out. we couldn't pull it out. and unfortunately he passed away a few months later. and i remember i went back to the tree and there was a cicada on the saw. and that's what i base one of my paintings on. i honestly felt like it was him coming to visit me. i really feel like it's all symbolic with each other because so many things and are just so ephemeral and they pass you by like the cicadas are and they live underground for lake 13 to 18 years and they come up just for 3 weeks and they buzz around and they sing their songs and they dance and dance, and then they kind of die. they can make you sad for me when i think about my grand
1:39 pm
or just makes really happy because he had a really good life is short and it reminds me a lot of the little kayden when they thing their song like i feel like he is like what that thing really beautiful and yeah i actually, i made a short film in my call for your college that highlighted all that and i i made a piano so me, me the use . i
1:40 pm
mean, he lets me and you can enjoy the here, isn't it? my name is doug and i live in philadelphia and my favorite, my favorite insect as a month is the 1st thing to know is that the cases are harmless. and you should worry if they land on you or if they fly and you listen to change. ok, you went to timble, have a nice ok and you know how they make it?
1:41 pm
they vibrate it, right. they pop it in out. this is what it looks like. i found the dead one and they cut it open. oh. these, these things are muscles and they, they move really fast popping that this little draw it out. notice also that the key to this is a meal ticket is empty inside reason tempe, is it because it's like a musical instrument, like a guitar. it has a space inside. it allows the sound to resonate, improves the sound and amplifies the sound so that the song carried farther. go once to the cicadas or up in the tree top. it's all going to be about romance. it's very much like humans. once they get eyeball to eyeball, the male cicadas has to use his very best performance to try to convince that special someone that they show to hook up and she should be the mother of this. and
1:42 pm
then he's going to use a variety of court chip songs and his performance has to be good because it's everybody know, it's always the females that get to choose. we think the one that sings the loudest, just like in the club, has the best performance. he may be the one that wins saying aloud singing long may win the heart of the female kid. that's what he's hoping for you. i hope in maryland right now, getting ready to go into the cater festival. and we traveled like $44.00 or 5 hours yesterday from long island, new york to come here and see all the cicadas. so magical, there's so many cases everywhere flying around and hatching. and we saw them last night at the hotel just everywhere.
1:43 pm
yeah, i wasn't really, i wasn't sure how locals really react to this because, oh by oh, he just made the car locals are kind of like on like different ends of the spectrum . like there's like a whole festival for them over here. and a lot of people are excited. but even last i met a couple of people who didn't really like the cicada. there is one lady who said that she was absolutely hated them and she was scared of them. and they used to fly into her hair when she was a little kid. so she just didn't have great memories of them. and i talked to her about my are, and i told her that i came here to see them. and she was like, completely shocked. but she actually really liked my artwork and asked her my card and wanted me to design it, had to for her. so it's just really funny how all of that kind of comes full circle . because one of the main things with my work is to kind of get people to see the bugs and like the cicadas specifically right now, like in a different way and to accept their beauty, even if they don't really like how many there are. and if they don't like creepy
1:44 pm
crawly, and stuff like that, it actually hurts a little bit when they get on your neck. how, who were not fil norland? i came here to photograph the emergence of the cater. and can see the math is the kid is here, this is like the center of root, tim, emergent. fortunately, my cousin lives here. so i've got a place to stay late and i definitely feel the amazed for. but i was definitely feeling the amazed part with being overwhelmed by the creepiness. i was just feeling dread at everybody's post the thing like they're coming. they're coming or like showing picture that like one or 2 and just this is the beginning. i just sort of felt like very foreboding and i didn't know what to expect. i think i'm trying to counteract
1:45 pm
that sense of dread by trying to find the sense of wonder and i want to be able to go outside every once a while. i was afraid to think it is very kind a little bit that you are afraid of that much when the girl named the mayor and the president who are the same person right of the same cicada, they have named him dan. he really fell off. he does have, he has the injured wing and so there tending to him by delivering burritos and cake which are crass and little roots wrapped up in a little other room in a nice package. and suzanne, still doing okay. they're really interesting and fun to catch
1:46 pm
and harmless, they don't actually hurt people. ah, china's raising prices. they're the ones who are dictating prices. and so we're creating a monster here. we created a brick and monster. we've got china economy zooming, pick and raise prices at will in no matter how high china raise prices for americans to buy their good buy. it's going to print more money to send to china. this is the worst is dopey in chinese finger traps that ever been invented. kate, i don't want to get it for my fiance. oh that is so you can have it. you seem really cool. what's your name at? awesome. you're so cool. i feel like you got to artistic sold to you like the bug,
1:47 pm
who so my initial idea to do this project and my project was supposed to take one afternoon. i was trying to make these insect more attractive for my kids. so all this is julia. can you say hi and what do you think about impact? kerry, when i make them do things that human makes them, do you think that humans view the timeline very, very fast? the one. i photograph some cicadas and over the weekend i posted a very short post on our local next door, which is our little social network for all the people that live in the area. and everyone love the idea and told me that they wanted to share my photos with their friends and families. so i put an extra tab on my website and that when pretty viral in the next 24 hours. and the next thing i know, washington post,
1:48 pm
what is to future me, and i've been contacted by pretty much every new, like local and national news, and ours, because have to go into outer space to me because the planetarium gotten a little too small for them to be so obviously some of the canons that have very high tolerance for alcohol because they are already passing out. since always the keaton, i don't know if they're going to be around in july 4th. it's still a month away or so i decided to throw them in independence day party to make sure that they have lots of fun before their short life. they're over. oh no, there is a fight. look about. oh dear. so this was one of my earlier said, it's kind of simple, but it's just lots of fun. it just rings true with
1:49 pm
a lot of people who after a year and a half will be in and locked down. now looking forward to just celebrating with their friends and families and grill um, the idea behind this is twofold. one is my personal interest in creating a community that normalize the data eating because i wanted to caters, but i thought it was growth. so i was like, i needed some moral support to do that myself and grill. oh grilly. oh, leave it in like a mild, sort of like i wouldn't say sure. i would say sort of like like a worm into fried. if you never, even one of those is not going to help you out my show you. how do you because you
1:50 pm
were air for 600 or 6 minutes or 400 degrees. the old, they really remind me at the sea food, so it does have the 1st time i got that by that people told me i would get, whereas most the other ones, it was more like a peanut giving you the full lifespan of the cicada than them to the toner, all goes to the full, mature adult. yeah. look at that beautiful morsel morsels. yeah. the marshall cycle. try one of the, it's very mild. it's just kind of like took me. do you think it is the case? i wrote why not? i was a good lie to
1:51 pm
me. i mean that very satisfying. cicadas are just so plentiful and i know from past broods that a lot of them are going to get eaten. and even if they don't, they're going to die really soon after that. and so the ethical concern is somewhat less about like causing individual suffering. so again, like i needed a whole test of all but it worked, worked for me and it worked for a lot of i guess it's like more normal now, i'm not ready to pick up a great big, juicy grub from the compost or from our mulch pile and pop it in my mouth, but i might roast it. i might air fry it in there. will have a whole victor here given to me
1:52 pm
. i think a free cave as before, i cook little kiner kate, him and also to keep him from turning dark. and white color we have a fry. 17 years ago i still was here, so cade is, are back. and, oh my goodness, today was so loud. it was in the side that i heard it. i thought there was war traffic, but low. it was sick. i mean, bad, bad. we gotta mind it. where does that randomly think?
1:53 pm
okay. oh my god. you know, like when you're down the street you why you and they're yeah, they're covering the sidewalk. just carcases and you're just like, wow, i'm even. yeah. so like you're walking around, you have to be like like this, so you don't step on any kind of go yeah, you know, you key. so this is, this is a decimal meter. when it, when you're quiet. yeah. then you basically make your go to 7080. yeah. but yesterday it was really loud to wind up like it was more loud. so i went up to 80 on the thing and said when i 80, that is the sound. it sounds like like a food blender. yeah. one is always like basically like having a food lender outside or all time you think it's a female might be more than
1:54 pm
a human. they mean it's like a, like say hello, are they going to, if you, if you think they just passed each other? yeah. no one's up in the trees. well i guess one, this was a male to singing. it's this a k to police, and it's all about romance. the guy, those teenage cicada is, are rocking out. they've been underground social distance thing. living a cold, good like existence for 17 years in a, they're teenagers. they're going to thing they're going to have romance much same way, we're taking off our math. we're getting together with friends, to socialize, listen to music, and have romance. pain in the hair . when they are coming out of their shell, when they're most,
1:55 pm
they have so many things that can go wrong. and so they'll like damage their little soft body slightly. yeah. and then they begin to lose chemo. so i noticed in watching them and it turned from clear to o blessone to gray to black as it was oxidising with eric closure. so it's just like this really magical thing that was happening while we would collect them and they would be, you know, they would have dropped from the tree and be slightly bruised or something. and then this liquid got lacker in blacker. so i thought, let me and it turned out it makes very color fast. i've done some solar test and it does not disappear or fade in the sun either. so it's like really color fad. like my husband into deer hunter and we use every part of the yeah. and it's the same even with with fluids and plants by harvest herbs for soup.
1:56 pm
once they strip the leaves, i'm like, well deserves. i don't want to waste them either. so they go in like the doctor who you're here for thing. you know, we've been married for 25. if you're going to think of that was a male female ah, female has more liquid inside. oh, me or you look at the roles, the kid is in the environment. it's kind of like
1:57 pm
a big bonus. they come out every 17 years, quite a number of animals probably get into a population. during that time period caught a cane and just after human metamorphose and still white and pale with nice and soft, it's going to bring it back to the nest box and, and the, the young with it. this is the male eastern blueberry. what happens to all the bodies? yeah, they decompose the bacteria, break them apart and eat them. and they become part of the soil. and they, they feed the trees that fed them right. and when they feed the trees, the trees are healthy and they see this, the new status. it's like the food is going into the cicada. it's a cycle, right? this was, this is wildwood state park in waiting reverse new york. this is
1:58 pm
a really important place to me. this is actually where a lot of my art was inspired from. i came here with my friend, tristan, and there used to be actually a tree right in front of me that we were more realized and put one of his unitary cards on. and it just so happened to have fallen down a lot in this place has been rooted. i think that coming back here now and seeing that the trees are gone, really add some reality of the art that i made. and like so many things that are no longer here, i can make them live on through my artistic vision. this is a tattoo that i designed to my tattoo artist in 2015 after my friend trust and passed away. and i drew up this cicada inspired dagger knife because he really reminded me of a cicada. and every time i look down at my arm, i can know that i shouldn't give up. and i got to dance the dance just like this. the kid is, do i think that's a reminder to everyone,
1:59 pm
metlife is sure. and we should enjoy it as much as we can while we can, because we're kind of like cicadas to life really just passes by fast and you never know how long you have. and i think it's just important to remember that life is beautiful. i use. oh oh yeah, i your all the oh me
2:00 pm
i the stories this protests and the stadiums and athletes infected with quite ceremonial and was hoping for us to take games. finally, get some of the authors to come questions right. there was a decline. what was the most powerful navy in the world as it turns out, that just one british naval destroy is currently fully operational and following a recent way to protest in cuba, the u. s. and new brand of sanctions against the care of the nation. the biden administration shows no sign and backing down on americas long time. rival now says there's no.
