Collaboration Between Artist And Insects

Caddisfly larvae are living in canals and rivers, exactly where they pick up natural materials such as tiny rocks, sand, little branches and other things that they might take to construct sophisticated armors that give defense against various threats. The larvae glue all those things it collects using silk. Making use of this information, Hubert Duprat puts the Caddisfly larvae in special aquariums and switches their regular constructing materials with gold spangles, diamonds, sapphires, pearls, opals, rubies, turquoise and lets nature take its course. The finished cases will be sophisticated art pieces which can be put up like beads to provide unique jewelry.
