Take a glance through the shell of a beetle and you will find fascinatingly complex and highly aesthetic structures. Taking X-Ray-Images of a stag beetle (Lucanus Cervus) we made the formerly invisible insides of this animal visible. Separated, yet juxtaposed, inside and shell are presented in our installation. On a weathered wooden plank, the interior stands open and unprotected from the exoskeleton The wooden base stands for the beetles natural habitat and thus the dependence of the endangered beetle on natural habitats and wildlife.
