Hiroshi Shinno Creates Imaginary Insects With Plants And Resin

Hiroshi Shinno creates imaginary insects that perfectly blend into their surroundings – because there are made from parts of these surroundings! He collects petals, leaves, grass stems and flower stamens – and molds them into intricate ‘herbal’ insects, a blend of real natural pieces and polyurethane resin copies. Hiroshi Shinno works with truly miniature flower parts, seeds, ‘shells so thin that they are translucent, and dry, holey leaves that disintegrate under the slightest pressure’. So far he has constructed nineteen fantastical structures of these fanciful insects – a testimony to delicate and transient side of nature where sophisticated beings are born, develop and die all in one day.
