Insect Lab

by Watchismo

Maine-based artist Mike Libby found a dead beetle. Recognizing a connection between the invertebrate creatures and mechanical watches, he now imports exotic specimens for dissection and artistic restructuring using antique balance wheels, mainsprings and other types of cogs for his Insect Lab. Butterflies, spiders, dragonflies and other species that Libby has modified are available for purchase through his site starting at $200.
