STAG BEETLE, 2016 | bone | 145 x 100 x 90 mm
In 2016 I created a pop up museum called The Museum of Transformation. This pop up space explored, through natural and interventionist processes, the breakdown and fusion of ideas and materials. Stag Beetle, one of the exhibits, transforms the skull of a stag into a beetle-like bug. To achieve this I carefully broke the skull open along its sutures and reassembled it, turning the membrane bone or delicate internal turbinates into the beetles wings.
