Incredible sculptor Tessa Farmer collaborated with the London Natural History Museum's Entomology Department to unleash an army of tiny faeries on the museum's mounted insect and animal collection. The exhibition, titled Little Savages, runs until January 28. As part of the exhibit, Farmer, Sean Daniels, and my friend Mark Pilkington made a stop-motion film of the faeries' in the wild. Interesting, Farmer is the great granddaughter of fantastic fiction author Arthur Machen, a fact she only found out after developing her relationship with the faeries.
"They have their roots in Victorian fairies, who were quite mischievous and lived in natural habitats, often torturing animals," Farmer recently told The Guardian. "My fairies are more gory. Their ultimate ambition is to attack humans..."
