"I installed an ant colony inside my scanner five years ago. I scanned the nest each week..."

>This short film is an exploration of the aesthetic of life and degradation. 

Five years ago, I installed an ant colony inside my old scanner that allowed me to scan in high definition this ever evolving microcosm (animal, vegetable and mineral). The resulting clip is a close-up examination of how these tiny beings live in this unique ant farm. I observed how decay and corrosion slowly but surely invaded the internal organs of the scanner. Nature gradually takes hold of this completely synthetic environment.
The ants are still alive : the process will continue…

Part of the WORLD EXPO Shanghai 2010, presented by "OPEN THIS END"
