The Story

Insects are very interesting for me as a basis for these collages because their bodies consist of different segments that are connected to each other. It is the same with the polyhedra. So it was only logical that I transformed a segment of this beetle into a polyhedron, which, despite all its strangeness, looks very plausible.


My collages are based on historical drawings of animals, either from early scientific expeditions or natural history studies. Using image processing, I transform individual parts of the drawn animal bodies into geometric shapes. In a final step, I combine the original drawing and the polyhedron to create a hybrid new animal.
