Insect Lab is a project by Mike Libby that combines real (dead) insects with clockwork gears.
This hybridization of insects and technology from both fields, is where Insect Lab borrows from. Insect Lab celebrates these correspondences and contradictions. The work does not intend to function, but playfully and slyly insists that it possibly could.
I think I might want a steampunk spider.
