Bringing new meaning to the phrase Dead Bug, these photographs by Luca di Filippo use insects constructed from electronic components as their subjects.

Part of a larger work called Daily Contaminations, these images are meant to highlight the digital traces we leave behind in our everyday lives that often get scooped up by corporations for their own uses.

With recent talk of insect-sized aerial drones, these little buggers seem to be timely.
