"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…

This is my Sinaloan Milksnake up close and personal. He is as docile as any dog, or cat that I have owned. I trust that he won't bite me because I got him when he was about the size of a pencil. Never once in the last five years has it struck at me. Of course not every snake is like this one. I have been bit by others that I kept as pets. Shot using manual focus on an HG10.
