I like the idea of spending hours meticulously crafting something that most people think of as ruined. Often when something has "gone bad" it has given rise to something new, but it can be hard to appreciate new growth in the shadow of our disappointment.

The act of putting so much thought and labor into something implies value, prompting the viewer to explore past their initial response. Curiosity over how mimicry is constructed draws people closer to something they would normally flinch away from.
