Litter Bugs: Sculptural Insects Made of Antique Junk

Fleeting Dragonfly; Mark Oliver

What's a Litter Bug? According to artist Mark Oliver, this:

Arthropod sub-species of the Insecta class.
A creature whose instinctual and physical qualities have adapted so uniquely to the modern urban environment that it has rendered itself, by nature of camouflage, virtually invisible in it’s normal habitat.

When seen in isolation ‘Litter Bugs’ appear to be composed of everyday ‘found’ objects.

I don't think I would call these steampunk (though Flavorwire does, and they probably know more about that than I do), the mixed-media sculptures are incredibly intricate. I especially love the teensy little clock face used here as the dragonfly's head. Check out the full swarm of Litter Bugs on Mark Oliver's site. Link -via Flavorwire
