Robotic Steampunk Insects

Artist Lindsey Bessanon acquires dried, dead insects from suppliers on ebay, collectors and entomologists. The insects are then re-humidified so they take on their proper shape. Lindsey then pokes the insect bodies with gears, cogs and metals, creating the terrific/terrifying cyborg-ish Steampunk insects. The insect taxidermy kind of thing looks pretty scary; we’d never want to run into a mechanical spider.
