Ben Crappsley presents Habitation & Decay: a collection of digital collage prints on paper investigating combinations of cockroach images with iconic motifs of human habitation, investigation, reverence and organisation.

Let us reconsider our relationship with these insects. As symbols of durability, endurance, and continuance the cockroach has much to offer as a metaphor for philosophical contemplation.
