Got a bunch of old electronic parts lying around? While they might end up in the trash heap for many of us, artist Ann P. Smith sees new life in old junk.
Smith takes broken down electronics and machine parts to create her amazing menagerie of animal and insect sculptures.
While they aren’t mechanical works themselves, many of her “robots” do feature posable joints, which she’s used to produce stop-motion animation of her critters.
Ann’s works are sold in galleries and shops around the US, and have been featured as illustrations in a number of magazines and other publications.
Find out more about Ann and her art over on her website burrowburrow. And when you’re ready to buy one of her pieces for your very own, be sure to check out her Etsy shop. Prices range from as little as $22 for simple insects, all the way up to $2500+ for her most intricate creations.
