The story of 'Debug 3D'
Currently Edhv is developing their vision on organic and reactive identities. For the “Bits ‘n Pieces” exhibition in New York 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 them is unique and moves around in different ways. Some posters are made by woodlice, 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.
For the Salone del mobile in Milan they further developed this project to the point where it is possible to create three dimensional models. This resulted in the creation of a chair made by insects. Hence we started doing posters, logos, now even three dimensional furniture and jewelry. Next step maybe architecture?
