Description

From Insects is a celebration of the inherent beauty in natural processes.

“Coming from a family of beekeepers, I am interested in the viability of utilizing insects and their waste streams to create future craft artifacts. Already science is exploring the potential of insects for food production and to satisfy our future dietary needs, however, I am primarily interested in using insects as co-partners in the design process; rather than consuming them, I am interested in how we can work with them and explore how their natural waste streams could be harnessed in the production of valuable craft artifacts in the future. I am interested primarily in two insects that we currently farm: the common honey bee, which produces propolis (a natural bio-degradable resin) and the Indian silkworm, which discards it’s hard cocoon when it reaches maturity.”
