In terms of the evolutionary ladder, human beings fall rather far from hermit crabs, and it is quite difficult to draw many similarities between the two species. Japanese artist Aki Inomata doesn't have trouble seeing the connection, and she instills her insightful opinion into her unique living sculptures.
Although she has created a large body of work, she has received international acclaim and attention for a specific series that blends art and life in a way that most artists would never even consider. Her work consists of miniature cityscapes carved from plastic that have been built specifically to fit a certain hermit crab.
