The Bug Hotel

Manuela Montoya Escobar | Spain

I started making this project in 2019, it has its origin in a story of when I was a little kid: I found a pupa moving slightly in a hole on the ground, and I spent weeks thinking of it. That's the story's starting point; it was incredible when I found out beetles do this too.

Mr. Beetle is the owner of the Bug Hotel, a place for all kinds of insects with rules that everyone must follow.

Many of the guests don’t feel completely happy,
so they communicate it to Mr. Beetle, who gets upset and disappears.

Everything in the hotel begins to fail, and to fix things, its owner must go through a transformation.
