Power of Design

“…the conversion

from ‘pest’ to gem

occurs through the power

of design.”

— Jennifer Angus


“Every being devotes and dedicates itself to some innate purpose. Single cells, microbes, plants, insects, animals—every being makes its own unique contribution.” — Julie J. Morley

“I get inspiration from a lot of things around me – nature, hills, people, and even insects.” — Ruskin Bond

Magic Cicadas ~ Known for her creative installations using large numbers of insects arranged in ornamental patterns, University of Wisconsin professor of design Jennifer Angus anthropomorphizes insects in the hope that she can create interest in the role that insects play in ecosystems. Her Silver Wings and Golden Scales exhibit may be seen at the Florence Griswold Museum, Old Lyme, Conn. through November 10.
