We have built an experimental machine that prints artwork with the help of insects. 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' specific movements into graphics which then will be printed as posters. Every one of them is unique. Some posters are made by woodlice, some of them by house crickets. We used tracking software and scripting to map the walking patterns of these little creatures. The complexity of movement leads to stunning results.
