HUBERT DUPRAT //
Sometimes you just need a little glamour in your life. Enter this collaboration between man and bug: Hubert Duprat and a group of caddisfly larvae.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
In nature, these tiny craftsmen live near flowing bodies of water, such as streams or rivers. They collect various particles in their vicinity – dirt or sand, rocks, twigs, bits of bone or shell – and spin them with silk secreted from their bodies to create a temporary aquatic cocoon where they live until they complete metamorphosis and are ready to fly. Duprat upped the ante, placing the caddisfly larvae in an environment full of precious stones. The result is incredibly intricate pieces of jewelry, made from gold, opal, pearls, and turquoise, among other things. Heaven.
