Description

This installation produces drawings based on the subtle movements of houseflies. When a fly enters a small chamber, sensors detect its movements. A micro-controller articulates a drawing arm in real time based on the fly's movements. When a fly is no longer detected in the chamber, the paper scrolls over and the device waits until a new fly enters to begin another drawing.
