  • Darth Vader made from Spiders and Butterflies

    Darth Vader by Klaus Enrique.
    He’s built human-like sculptures made of flowers, fruits and vegetables before, but insects presented a new level of tedium. It took nearly 300 hours to get it just right. All told he used some 150 insects sourced from around the world. The tarantulas and scorpions came from a vendor in Arizona, for example, while most of the butterflies came from a Chinese eBay vendor who charged $3 to $5 apiece for them.
    The butterflies were brittle, so Enrique had to carefully moisten them in a humidity chamber he fashioned from a take-out container, water, paper towels, mouthwash (to keep bacteria from forming), rocks and mosquito net. The humidity allowed him to sculpt and pin the wings without destroying them. Enrique used pins to hold to bugs in place, and removed them later using Photoshop. “To make this happen I had to become a mini expert in bugs,” Enrique says.
    Like many of his sculptures, which tend to rot or fall apart, the Vader piece is fragile and the photo is the final product. Enrique feels the medium is a metaphor for his subject. “The butterflies have a meaning of metamorphosis, change happens,” he says. “Darth Vader was this good guy then he turns into the most evil person in the universe.”

    The "Perfect" Body

    By Ben on Fri Apr 24 2015 |
    Gear | Video
    "When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see? Or do you stare at yourself, pinching your fat away, lifting up your butt, pushing in your boobs, wishing you looked like a VS supermodel? It's hard to be content with the shape of your body when people are constantly telling you how fat you are. The backhanded compliments, the mean comments, the cyber bullying - all of this messes with us...and it hurts. What if getting flat abs and bigger boobs was as easy as a click. What if you could stop all the hate and just photoshop yourself right now, in real life? What would you change? "
