The concept of Works

I create life form objects, such as insects, fish and animals sometimes in my imagination. Creating the body, I use paper-macher and wires. After painting with lacquer paint, decorate with metal and electric parts such as bolts, nuts and so on. Our life is getting more convenient with technological advance. On the other hand, so much material is wasted. If life forms evolve like machines, they might be called "Mechanical Mutants"
