Scott Bain’s portrayal of humans using insects to our own whim and will is quite interesting. Using real taxidermy beetles, his Micromachina exhibit is meant to illustrate how humans are the Earth’s biggest pest. Bain's dioramas explore the ways in which we try to manipulate Mother Nature and everything she creates for our own greedy need for personal gain.

Scott Bain’s taxidermy beetles turn the dead insects into mechanized shells, likening them to the way humans mistreat our fellow Earth inhabitants. Military-controlled insects would be a conspiracy lover’s dream. Stats for Dead Beetle Dioramas Trending: Older & Mild
