For art exhibit “Bits ‘n Pieces,” Edhv has built an experimental machine that prints artwork with the help of insects. Crazy, cool!
Notes about project (from the “Bits n Pieces” program):
Every species of insects has its own behaviour which is influenced by its environment, for instance light conditions and obstacles along its path. This means all species walk different routes and paths, also according to their size, instinct, capabilities, etc. Edhv’s machine will be translating these species’ movements into graphics which then will be printed as posters, which will be available for purchase.
Edhv tests the”Debug” printing device.
Every poster is unique. Some are made by woodlice and others house crickets. Edhv uses a tracking software and scripting to map the movement of insects.
This chair is constructed based on tracking of ants walking on a scale model.
