Living in old buildings, full of holes, slits and covered with cockroaches, people need to put more cockroaches trap to patch them.
“Cockroaches Trap” is about a gecko accidentally runs into a cockroach trap, wanting to get out, like the washing machine in the kitchen…
This work is taken in an old home environment, which is loose and unreliable. In this case, the house seems to have a life. The old house was filled with all kinds of annoying little creatures, whose life were tied with the old house, one in the room, one in the cockroach trap living with struggle.
