Eusociality in the EU

Otto Canell Watkins, Robin Watkins - Eusociality in the EU
A collaboration between Otto (10) and Robin (42).
Eusociality in the EU is a book about ants and their habitats, or perhaps more so about humans and their habits, which lends an age-fluid voice to various contents of the European continent: animals, plastic bags, homelessness, algae, chewing gum, hocus-pocus, money, holes, ant colonies, fantasy beings, tree roots, lemonade, politics and flag-fluff. As the world transformed during the eight years it took to complete, subjects grew and angles changed, and the book took on a form as disorderly as life itself. Part allegory, part nonsense, and using play as an essential driver, this fable-esque jumble spanning 304 pages attempts to reflect community beyond society—with a little help from a lot of sugar.
Otto Canell Watkins (born 2012) is the son of Nina Canell and Robin Watkins.
Born 1980 in Stockholm, Robin Watkins lives and works in Berlin.
