A bug's life

Put your feelers out and explore this exhibition about cockroaches and discover what the creepy-crawly critters have to teach us about surviving in a harsh world

- +

You cannot help but admit that each day it's becoming harder to survive, let alone live. A slug can move faster than the line at Starbucks. The Android is too confusing to use, but it's all you can afford. Home-cooked food tastes too crappy for your liking. Your iPod battery ran out so you had to walk down the street listening to birds chirping like some medieval peasant. 

With existential problems nagging us at every opportunity, we are probably far from getting into the altruistic mentality of undertaking world-changing acts _ planting trees, picking up rubbish and whatnot. Good thing that this year's winner of the Young Muse Project has found a way to save the world, and it starts with you changing the way you think. In fact, they suggest that cockroaches can be your role model.

The Young Muse Project, organised by the National Discovery Museum Institute and Museum Siam, is back for its third year. It was started with the intention of creating a new generation of museum exhibition designers, as well as stimulating young people to take more interest in learning through museums. No display or exhibition at Museum Siam becomes a snooze fest: we can always expect to see events that are hip, technologically-advanced and actually fun to take part in, while also being educational.
