Specializing in media art, Helen Altman created this creepy art exhibition in her exploration in the meaning of life.

Incorporating mixed media within her pieces, Altman creates an interesting composition with these lotus leaf skulls. Helen Altman also takes other naturalistic materials to create these works, ranging from wood pieces and even to cocoons.

Implications - The skulls created by Helen Altman look as if an insect or bird has made them for a home to sleep in. The Sweet Station website explains that the exhibition piece with the bed represents wasp eggs being "laid on living caterpillars that serve as the host for the growing wasp larvae." The bed is represented as the "victim" in the process.
