“I think perfection is ugly.
Somewhere in the things humans make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion.”

― Yohji Yamamoto




Using fake fingernails, nail polish, barrettes, false eyelashes, jewelry, walnut, and Swarovski crystals, artist (and former park ranger!) Laurel Roth assembles these amazing peacocks. Via her website:

I use art as a medium to examine biological ramifications of human behavior. My work juxtaposes traditional craft and artisanal techniques with non-traditional materials to examine mankind’s drive to modify itself as well as its environment. By playing with the convergence of biology and product design to create new cultural artifacts, I try to question social constructions of need, design, and individual desire.
