Art made with Bugs

Robot-like insects and insect-like robots are the stuff of science fiction and science fact. Often in science fiction, insects are frequently featured as robotic critters. So, inspired by science fiction and science fact, since 1999, Insect Lab Studio customizes real preserved insect specimens with antique watch parts and mechanical components. 

From butterflies to beetles, each work pretends to be a spirited and luxurious celebration of nature and machine.
