Mike Libby

While scrolling through pinterest the other day I found this interesting artist Mike Libby. He takes insects and makes sculptural, Robotic creatures out of them. He puts old watches and other mechanics inside of the insects exoskeleton. It looks beautiful but why is he doing this if it does not work as a machine ... is it just for show? He explains in his statment that insects are being used as examples for new technology. But what is he doing for these insects?
I love his work, because it's so alluring, and the sculptural aspects are so beautifully and delicately
designed.  I just wonder what all you guys think about him?
