Adam Morrigan seems to have made a bit of a name for himself in the media recently, by making artwork out of roadkill.
While I'm against things going to waste, I don't think I'd particularly want one on my wall! But by having a 'roadkill hotline' at least he's doing is part to 'Keep Britain Tidy!'
Fresh meat doesn't go to waste either, as Adam sometimes has it for dinner. Needless to say his three children are vegetarian.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
