Noboru Tsubaki's lone, gargantuan Locust descends upon Lamport Stadium.
Separated from its migratory swarm, its status as a remnant or threat
of airborne plagues to come is unclear. Is this cute, colourful,
cartoon-like insect a real threat or a personal omen? What is our
crime and what is our defense? Do we take comfort in Liliputian
safety? For how long will these ropes hold? For how long can we
keep our fears at bay?
