Insect Lab

GreenRutelidae

Borrowing from science fiction and fact, Insect Lab customizes real insect specimens with antique watch parts and other technological components. From ladybugs to grasshoppers, each is individually hand adorned, a unique celebration of the contradictions and confluences between nature and technology.

The artist, Mark Libby, has a good point: while in sience fiction insects have been constantly pictured as invading aliens or as robo-bug counterparts to a futuristic human race, in reality engineers look to insect movement, wing design and other characteristics for inspiration of new technology. From these two aspects Libby draws his inspiration and we must say his work is truly impresive.
