While Darwin Sleeps

Out of the estimated ten million species of insect on Earth, only a tenth have been identified by science.  The Walter Linsenmaier Collection in Lucerne contains a quarter of a million species and out of those only 3,500 have been used in this short film.  However, it will still make you dizzy - as the colours glow and change across their bodies and wings it seems that the genetic programme of millions of years is taking place in a few minutes.  While Darwin Sleeps was created by Paul Bush.
