Today’s image is another of the giant bugs in the local botanical gardens. Like I said yesterday, I really wasn’t sure what to expect out of these. When I first heard that the gardens was going to put bugs around the grounds, something really really tacky came to my mind. I was pleasantly surprised when I laid my eyes on the sculptures for the first time. I just did some more research on them, and the artist is David Roger. He is based out of New York and sculpts the over sized insects by hand using many types of different materials. I guess this exhibit travels all over the U.S. You can learn more about Dave and his work on his website, www.big-bugs.com. What a fitting name!
I did some experimenting with image and its processing. I was trying to go for a nuclear/fall out look. You know, that some nuclear waste created these giant bugs. What do you think?
