The Huffington Post reports of Antonson's work and its connection to ethics and material sustainability, as well as of course bugs. Her method of making these insects makes me think of the fly lures that people tie for fly fishing.  SAIC faculty Joseph Grigley did a nice piece on that topic for Cabinet magazine a little while back...
