For inspiration, we must look towards environmental artists such as Christopher Marley. Marley collects a variety of insects and pins them to create wonderfully intricate insect mosaics. His relationship with insects was not always this intimate; rather it stemmed from fear and steadily grew into appreciation and environmental support. His goal is to create a positive, respectful relationship between the audience and the insect, and thus further the chances of protecting the natural environment and the wonders that it houses.
