The story of 'Debug 2D'
Edhv is developing their vision on organic and reactive identities. For the “Bits ‘n Pieces” exhibition in New York (2009) at Material Connexion, they built an experimental machine that prints artwork with the help of insects. Every species of insects has its own behavior, which is influenced by its environment, for instance light conditions and obstacles along its path.
Edhv’s machine translates these species’ specific movements into graphics, which then are printed as posters. Every one of these insects is unique and moves around in different ways. Some posters are made by woodlice, and some of them by house crickets. They use tracking software and scripting to map the walking patterns of these little creatures. The complexity of movement leads to stunning results.
