Catherine Chalmers makes some pretty awesome art videos and photographs using insects and small animals that she grows/raises herself. She respects and cares about the animals she uses, but understands the laws of nature, and sometimes subjects her "actors" to death. The above is a link to a video of hers. I would also suggest looking at her "foodchain" photo series. Some of the roach photos are pretty hokey, but largely I enjoy her work.
