are you going the right way for you being led to the direct? what is true? what is in a world corrupted. you need to defend the join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah, in the news. 7 years ago, very rude. previous emergency food 1015 right now, the children, the offspring of the cicadas are crawling on me. there are more than 3000 species,
periodical cicadas worldwide. they're found on every continent. 1 except in article, but it's only here in the eastern half the united states that we have 17 and 13 year periodical survey. this part of what makes this so special is this particular breed which we call breed 10 or brewed acts, which make the ever much more mysterious x marks the spot. this is the most widely distributed brood of 17 years. the kate is from anywhere on planet earth. all the way from georgia to long island, new york, and west ohio, illinois and 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.
oh i my name is melissa rose. i'm an artist based 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 and 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 or oh, this is my very 1st by alter that. i mean, i have
a few cicadas that are showcase from this piece that i used and both of them were found on shelter with my father. and he took me to the nature preserve that he was working at a lot of the things that have inspired me have been the symbology within the insects that i have found throughout my lifetime in my childhood that i held on to . 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 where i can honor them. for naturalists than children's mcarthur, and i live right here in chestnut hill and northwest part of philadelphia. so this is my latest coming invasion of the periodical cicadas
me directory park to look for k this. and i think i'm here a little bit early, but right now i'm looking for nymphs which are underground. next spend their time feeding on the tree roots and then in the spring, they build a little going up to the surface. often that title hit the bottom, the log and you can find the cicada right there at the bottom. the log is neighborhood like this one in rockville with great place to find the key to see the old trees and the lawn. well, mrs area hasn't been served 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 really started off. my interest was potatoes and there symbology. throughout my art this, the cato, we actually found in the greek mountains and that was the 1st 2nd 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 had been broken and one reach of enlightenment. in japanese culture, the cicada is seen as a symbol of reincarnation through their constantly shutting their skin and leaving behind nothing but to show their also symbolizes evanescence. through their short list. and i
there's a place on long island, it's called wildwood state park, and that's where me and my friends used to go all the time like growing up in high school. and i found a bunch of cicadas there once, and there was a tree that i found and someone must just 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 in life are just like so ephemeral and they pass you by like the cicadas are and they live underground for like 13 to 18 years and they come up just for 3 weeks. and they buzz around and the thing their songs and they dance and dance and then they kind of die. it can make use of that for me. when i
think about my friend, it just makes really happy because he had a really good life even though is short and it reminds me a lot of the little gators when they thing their song like i feel like he is like with them really beautiful and yeah, actually i made a short film in my sophomore year college that highlighted all that. and i i made a piano. so for me i
changes ok, you went to timble, how they mean? okay. and do you know how they make it? 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 are the things your muscles and they, they move really fast popping that this little drop in and out. notice also that the key to this is a meal ticket is empty inside read. whose empty 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 the cicadas are 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 males dictated, has to use his very best performance to try to convince that someone that they
should hook up and she should be the mother of this name. he's going to use a variety of courtship 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. i hope in maryland right now, getting ready to go into the civil and we've traveled like 4 or 5 hours yesterday from long island. new york to come here and see all the cicadas. it's so magical. there's so many caters everywhere, fly around and hatching. and we saw them last night at the hotel just everywhere.
yeah, i wasn't really, i wasn't sure how local really react to this because oath by, oh, he doesn't. 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 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 art, and i told her that i came here to see them. and she was like, completely shocked. but she actually really like my artwork and after my card and wanted me to design attach you for her. so it's just really funny how all of that kind of come full circle. because one of the main things is my work is the kind of get people to see the bugs in like this, kate, as specifically right now. like in a different way and except their beauty,
even if they don't really like how many there are. and if they don't like creepy crawly, and stuff like that, it actually hurts a little bit when they get on your neck. he how, who were not fil morling? i came here to photograph the emergence of if the kid is in to see the math. if the kid is here, this is like the center of the brute can imagine. fortunately, my cousin lives here, so i've got a place to stay late. i mean i definitely feel the amazed for me, but i was definitely feeling the amazing part with being overwhelmed by the creepiness. i was feeling dread at everybody's person thing like they're coming. they're coming or like showing picture that like one or 2 and just this is the beginning just sort of felt like very foreboding. and i didn't know what to
expect. i think i'm trying to counteract 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. i mean, they're very, a little bit home. but you are afraid of that much when the girls named the mayor and the president who are the same person, right? or the same cicada, they have named him zahn. he really fell off. he does have, he has a injured wing and so they're tending to him by delivering burritos and cake with her grass and little roots wrapped up in the other room in a nice package. and suzanne,
and it got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a tragic. he told us that andrew was a competent short term. this is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like something else had to be happening. i. 8 don't want to get it for my fiance. oh that is so you can have the word you seem really cool. what's your name at? awesome. you're so cool. i feel like you got an artistic sold to you like the bug. 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 do it. can you say hi. and what do you think about impacts jerry, when i make them do things that human and make them do you think that human the timeline was very, very fast. the one i photographed them 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 went pretty viral in next 24 hours. and the next thing i know, washington post, what is to feature 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 because the
planetary gotten a little too small for them to be so obviously some of the cicadas and not 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 lights are 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 a lot of people who after a year and a half of been in lockdown, looking forward to just celebrating with their friends and families. and grill
from the idea behind is twofold. one is my personal interest in creating a community that normalize the data eating because i wanted to. but i thought it was gross. so i was like i needed some moral support to do that myself and grill. oh grilling or 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 my show you how do you because you were air for 600 or 6 minutes or 400 degrees. the old they really reminded 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, did you? you think it's like i just wrote i was a good. 7 lie to the job. i mean,
that's not very satisfying. cicadas or 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 festival, but it worked, it 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 care given to the committee
of free cave as before, i could be a little kinder to him and also to keep him from turning dark and white color. he have a friday 17 years ago i still was here. cicadas are back. and oh my goodness to day the war was so loud. it was in sight that i heard it. i thought there was war traffic, but no, it was a damage. i mean, bad, bad. like i don't mind it. where does that landing? okay. oh my god, this is not that bad. the like when you're down the street,
you me if i you know i one. 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, you don't step on any kind of go in or you know, you key. so this is, this is a decimal meter. when it ok 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 says when i 80, that is the sound. it sounds like like a good blender. yeah. one is always like having a blunder outside our old time. ah, the mirror and a female might be more than human. they mean it's like a like stay hello. are they going to,
if you think i just pass each other mode? yeah, was up in the trees might be, well i guess one display was a male singing. it's 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 cobit like existence for 17 years in a, they're teenagers. they're going to sing, they're going to have romance much the same way. we're taking off our math. we're getting together with friends, to socialize, listen to music and romance in the last hair. when they are coming out of the shell, when they're most, they have so many things that can go wrong. and so they'll like damage their little soft body lightly. 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 lacquer in black or so i thought and it turns out it makes very color. i've done some solar tests and it does not disappear or fade in the sun either. so it's like really color fast. like my husband is a dear hunter and we use every part of the and it's the same even with, with foods and live by harvest, herbs pursued once i strip the leaves on them like well deserves. i don't want to
waste them either. so they go in like the news of the here for thing, you know, we've been married for 25 if you're going to think about was different all of those were liquid inside. oh. near to look at the role in the environment. it's kind of like a big bonus. they come out every 17 years. quite a number of animals probably get a big population during that time period caught
a keener just after in min metamorphose and still white and pale with nice and soft. it's going to bring it back to nest box and, and feed 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 then it's like the food is going into the cicada. it's a cycle right there for this is wildwood state park in weighting river new york. this is 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 realized and put one of his funerary cards on. and it just so happens to have fallen down. a lot of this place has been rooted. i think that coming back here now and seeing that the trees are gone really as for the fed morality 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 with 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 looked down on my arm, i can know that i shouldn't give up. and i got to dance the dance just like the cicadas. do i think that's a reminder to everyone, 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
ah, so what we try to do is really to leverage on the knowledge of this partners from developed countries and they offer free of charge the services now support little was so we app this is sort of a broker 12 things from developing an emerging countries to get access to space because clearly one of the issues, one of the show stoppers is the cost on the launch in the operation. the china is raising prices up. they're the ones who are dictating prices. so we're creating a monster here. we created a brick and monster. we've got china, economy zooming, they can raise prices at will,
in no matter how high china raise prices for americans to buy their goods. biden's going to print more money to send to china. this is the worst is dopey in chinese fingered trap that ever been invented. the headlines this saturday outcry, the british parliament has consented them, pays for the boy called the party conference if vaccine passports are required with tended coal versus r as the world's top free adul website load. she's a guide of famous new things. now getting some of it cost under the color of the process to put in a contemporary setting is described as being the of them more than $1.00 jaundra for monday. the artists.
