Designed to blend in with urban landscapes, Mark Oliver’s Litter Bugs fly on wings of paper, walk with eyeglass arms for legs, and have bodies fashioned from tin, watch parts, and book covers. The collection of fictitious arthropods are cataloged in an imaginary scientific paper called the “Compendium of Carabid and Terrestrial Detritus”. Both paying homage to the pursuit of knowledge through science and the adaptive nature of bugs, Oliver creates beautiful specimens with all of the detail of real beetles and moths.
