An Artist Creates Insect-Machine Hybrids To Raise Awareness

Robert Bowen's insect-machine hybrids are a part of a continuing fascination for the artist. A statement clarifies his consistent interest in this subject:

"There are so many unanswered questions I have about them," Bowen says. A terrible road we ought to never return? If the bees continue to extinct, should we design a substitute for picking up where they left off? Alternatively, do we take our destiny and stop toying with Mother Nature because that's what got us into trouble in the first place."
