Australian-based artist Scott Bain combines two of my all-time favorite obsessions, bugs and sculpture, and makes beautifully strange sci-fi scenarios out of taxidermied insects, plastic figures and tiny found objects that make a statement about humans’ almost mindless drive to make nature conform to our will, needs, wants and desires without ever considering that nature does just fine on its own, without our intervention.
