Insect Lab Studio


Wow, this is fascinating...

A multi-disciplinary artist has come up with some very interesting designs using real insects and antique watch parts. 

His twisted designs remind me of steam punk art. Very cool!

It's interesting how he started this project, here is what he writes on his website:

"One day I found a dead intact beetle. I then located an old wristwatch, thinking of how the beetle also operated and looked like a little mechanical device and so decided to combine the two. After some time dissecting the beetle and outfitting it with watch parts and gears, I had a convincing little cybernetic sculpture. I soon made many more with other found insects and have been exploring and developing the theme ever since."

Although this idea is not new, I think this is the first time anyone has actually brought the concept to reality. 

You can purchase his designs, or request custom made designs anywhere from $400 - $1000+ see his website for details and check out his very cool gallery.

Very interesting!
