Museum of Jurassic Technology’s David Wilson talks

David Wilson, the creator of Los Angeles’ wondrous Museum of Jurassic Technology and a 2001 MacArthur “genius grant” winner, gives a free public talk about “The Wonder of It All,” and in particular super-teensy sculptures and mosaics, on Oct. 5 at Providence’s Rhode Island School of Design. According to the museum, the pictures here show a micromosaic made from the scales of butterfly wings by a 19th century gentleman named Harold Dalton and microminiature sculptures of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves crafted by the late Hagop Sandaljian.
