OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. Their world of biodiversity and beauty is filled with action and moments of quiet emotion. OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.
