What is it?

As you enter the space‚ millions of tiny bugs swarm and multiply around your reflection.
Each one is attracted to you‚ sticking to your skin‚ and slowly devouring your image.
Your motion disperses them‚ sending them away into space.

What does it say?

‘Swarm’ demonstrates that your digital identity is under attack‚ by giving identity theft a physical presence in the form of tiny creatures that are attracted to your digital identity‚ and that will attack it‚ invading your personal space and clinging to your projected image. ‘Swarm’ also reassure. Visitors can flail their arms and swing their bodies to disperse the swarm – computer users can protect their identities and explore the world safely if they apply some simple steps.
