Art work inspired by Change (In the House of Flies) by Deftones.

Disclaimer: Please look away if you do not like creepy crawlies.

This artwork is inspired by one of my favourite songs by Deftones. Recently I've felt that the meaning in this song has reflected a certain part of my life. The song is about how people can change and the fly in this photo represents something that was once something I wanted to take in or swallow, but is now something that makes me ill and something that repulses me, almost like poison. This is not an explicit sexual reference but more to do with the closeness and bond you have with someone. I guess if in the song, it's the person that has changed in to the fly, then you could said the fly is like a drug too which is now causing you pain rather than happiness. I took both photos myself, including the fly with a macro lens.

Here is the song if you'd like to listen to it:
