My stylized insects are the result of a project that I keep coming back to try to make them in different techniques, places and ideas. Almost all animals on earth are insects, both in terms of number of species and biomass. To understand why insect communities are built like they are, we must understand how different species interact with each other in time and space, how it affects their occurrence and what it has to do with the functioning of ecosystems. The most serious threat is that the insects' habitat is changing. What kind of changes are going on in the design and function of the insects are interesting. How they try to adapt during the long evolution to constant changing conditions is another observation I am doing.
