Bug as food as house
Bug as food as house is inspired by the idea of a bird eating a bug. “It’s similar to how we might like to have a house that looks like a sandwich,” artist Misha Kahn explains, “this transient relationship of desire for the bird.” Kahn hopes that changing the scale and relationship of bird and bug gives viewers an appreciation for how spectacular both creatures are.
Misha Kahn (b. 1989, U.S.) was born in Duluth, Minnesota, and got his BFA in furniture design at RISD. Kahn works across many media, from metal, ceramics, glass, weaving, plastics, and wood, melding ad hoc and craft techniques with the high tech. His work has been exhibited internationally and is held in many permanent collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Corning Museum of Glass.
