Debugged: ‘Graphic Design Bugs’

The Eindhoven-based design team ‘Edhv‘ made an installation to turn creepy crawlers into genuine graphic designers. By letting crickets, woodlice, ants and many other insects loose in a box with a camera on top of it, they are able to track the path of these little creatures. Through some tracking software and scripting these patterns then get printed on to big sheets of paper. Through modifying the landscape in the box they can create all sorts of logos and typography. As it turns out; each type of insect has it’s own specific pattern so no two prints are the same.
