Video Artist Fills His Scanner With Ants – What Are You Doing With YOUR Weekend?


Straight outta the wish-I’d-thought-of-that department comes Fran├žois Vautier, a video artist unafraid to sully precious technology with soil and insects. After filling his scanner with ants, Vautier proceeded to scan the colony each week for five years. The result is a fascinating time-lapsed trip through an almost-surreal biotechnical landscape. Personally, I don’t understand how he shot the video from BELOW the scanner, but life’s full of questions.

Ty is an illustrator who stays up too late, and has to wear glasses. You can follow him on Twitter if you want to (@glitchritual), but he's just gonna throw your stupid PR crap in the garbage, so don't email him.
