Scott Bain’s Micromachina are intended to make the viewer consider questions of nature, urbanization, genetic modification, and mechanization. How do they do that? By showing a world in which bugs are terrifying massive machine-filled super creatures. And, yes, those are real hollowed-out bugs Bain’s using. Gross.
The works are currently on exhibition at the 2011 Adelaide Fringe Festival. Pretty fringe indeed. More to be found over at Behance.
