3D Printed Titanium Insects

Bugs is an exquisite artwork combining science, art and technology in a unique cluster of three species of Australian Insects. Collection to Collective (making collections visible) is a result of a collaboration between science art fellow artist, Eleanor Gates-Stuart and scientist, Chuong Nguyen in their mutual research interest of reconstructing plants and insects as 3D scientific virtual models via scanning and titanium technologies. Bugs evolved through investigating the weevil (Sitophilus granaries) insect, a pest in wheat grain storage, and originally as part of the StellrScope Science Art Commission, hosted at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

The insects brought together expertise across CSIRO, including the Australian National Insect Collection, Entomology, Computational Informatics and Future Manufacturing. The insects were achieved by advanced scanning techniques and X-Ray Phase Micro CT imaging.
