Scott Bain's Beetle Dioramas

In his Micromachina project Australian artist Scott Bain creates pieces of art using taxidermy beetles as tiny machines to illustrate the negative effects of man's disregard for nature.
Once the stuff of science fiction, today flying and crawling insects are used by the military, fitted with audio and video devices. This exhibition experiments using real taxidermy beetles as mechanised shells, to show how we mistreat our fellow inhabitants, forcing them to do our will. - Via Who Killed Bambi

It sounds like the artist's statement was come up after the art was made. No need to justify when he just wants to make cool stuff, right?
