Giant Bugs

These bugs have superpowers. The Orchid Mantis blends perfectly with its surroundings, the Bombardier Beetle protects itself by squirting acid, the Dragonfly has lightning reflexes and the Bees are one of the only species with complex social structures.

Insects are everywhere. We would not exist without bees to pollinate our crops or insects to maintain the ecosystems upon which we depend. By turning the minuscule gargantuan, the Giant Bug roving act raises awareness of the necessity of insects for life on earth.

Developed for Melbourne Museum’s Bug Lab exhibition 2017 and presented in partnership with Magic Lantern Studio.
