Each work of art is available for sale and for technology geeks like myself they combine the beauty of nature with the intricate man-made work that goes into modern tech.

It’s not just Nintendo gaming consoles that are used to create the unique insects. Other electronics also make up a big portion of Julie’s work.

The circuit-based insects are available for sale on Etsy and they all appear to be out of stock at this time, but keep an eye on the artist’s store if you simply can’t live without your own man-made insect circuitry.
