The lacy pattern on the canvas was in fact created by the termite eating its surface when Truong Cong Tung put the roll in his rented house for a year. This work resembles again his repetitive motif of letting the object be destroyed, transformed and changed its original characteristic and function. It is a map not drawn by cartographer whose eyes are focusing in each details of the geographical land but by the termite colony that occupy and represent their road of living and ruining.
