The Urbanized Evolution of Insects
by Robin Russell
In order to survive, many species undergo an evolutionary process of adaptation in response to their changing environments. Some do this by camouflaging their appearances to mirror that of their environment, which provides protection against predators. This project explores how insects, such as butterflies, beetles, and dragonflies, would appear in an urban habitat. These insects manifest the colors and patterns found commonly in urban environments, such as pothole covers, graffiti, and burglar bars. Photographs of these urban details are composed in cut-out collages to form insects and the photo collages are printed on canvas.
