As a result of the photo-tactism they are subjected to, many insects seem to lose their sense of orientation when attracted to a light stimulus and start spinning frantically on themselves in search of lost balance. This phenomenon caught the curiosity of Markus and Reto, who took a close-up shot of some insects flailing above a light source. The soundtrack that accompanies the images, the very simple and obsessively repeated melody of a historical video game such as Pac-Man, modifies our perception of the scene with irony and humour.
