adaptation |adəpˈteɪʃ(ə)n|

noun [ mass noun ]
the action or process of adapting or being adapted:
In Biology, it is the process of change by which an organism or species becomes better suited to its environment.

My intentions in this brief were to highlight the fact, that if humans continue to neglect the needs of the Earth, and fail to live sustainably, all ecosystems and earths creatures, large and small would cease to exist.

They may be small, but insects make up 80% of animal species on earth and play vital roles in maintaining the balance of the ecological web. I set about imaginings what insects would evolve into, assuming they could adapt to a world deficient of their natural environments. My project outcome ‘Adaptation’ is a result of my conceptual developments.
