Let tell you about ants and people and how I turned the machine of society into a giant piano.
This is an example of how art can come from the most off-hand things. I just happened to catch this little fellow with my camera, and was going through some various permutations in Premier, when I realized I had enough to create something much bigger. Then I remembered a piece of music I'd been eager to use, and the synthesis was complete.
I should also mention that the little hitch in his step--the brief moment of hesitation he takes during his course--was all natural, I didn't edit the video there or anything. Ants do that constantly (pause, not edit video). I don't know if it's some kind of internal rhythm where their brains kick-in periodically to re-assess stimuli, but it's such a characteristic part of their movement.
