Nature’s Beautiful Misfits Sculpted from Scrap Metal

Edouard Martinet’s art will make you reimagine the insect world. The Frenchman’s sculptures are distinctly creepy, true to nature, and full of life. His medium is piles of bent metals and cast-off bits and pieces with shapes that appeal to him: bike parts, kitchen spatulas, trumpet parts, umbrella ribs—anything can be of use. Putting these items together only requires a few tools, although Martinet’s process takes months and is a test of patience. This short documentary follows his process for creating sculptures that are contradicting in the sense that they’re both beautiful and, well, junk.
