    “With over 30,000 insects at her disposal sourced ethically from Asia”???
    –> No one can be sure about dealers’ honesty, especially in countries with endemic biodiversity: no one can truly monitor how specimen are collected. Plus dealers are not the one collecting: they buy from locals who often collect and sell rare species as well when they find them.

    Acclaiming such an artist is totally irresponsible! And who care if they are not endangered, how can you ask for 30,000 insects in the name of Art and, what is worst, how can it even appear on a blog caring for environment? I am really chocked, this is just a call for biodiversity destruction. This is no better than stuffed animals hanging above doors in hunters’ home… Same idea, same philosophy at the end. Only here, it is under the hypocrisy of calling it Art.

    And it isn’t even the 1st piece of art of this artist… how many dead insects will she have used by the end of her life??? What if everyone was doing the same? What an outrage! And you think it’s ethical?

    Seriously, this is the 1st time I come accross someone pretending to care for biodiversity who is actually killing it for no other purpose than art and putting it on display. This is just completely disgusting, illogical and has no place on such a blog.

    Amazing ! Now imagine it with human skeletons in place of insect exoskeletons. It is the same thing . Really !
    If you want to do “art” , please do it with sell barbaric things , like photos or miniature statues. Thx
