Ant Farm In A Scanner

by Christopher Paul on July 31, 2010

François Vautier upgraded his flatbed scanner by “installing” an any colony in it. He then scanned the colony each week for five years. The resulting time-lapse video shows how the nest changed over the years. I love the idea and I applaud the dedication to the project but I can’t help but wonder if it would have been better to stay focused on one area instead of moving around.
