Straight from Eindhoven comes Debugged, Big Apple Bugs and Vernissage – a new exhibit from the enterprising experimental design team Edhv [2]. ‘Art by Insects’ is a fascinating series based on a vision of organic and reactive identities [3]. By using an experimental technology tracking software to map the movement patterns of various species of insects, Edhv has created a whole new medium of artwork that comes from life.

The graphic variety [5] of the series is established not only by species, but also depends on paramaters as distinct as an insect’s individual size or rythmic changes provided by an alterance in environmental conditions such as lighting [6] or added obstacles.

Edhv little critters’ finished artwork is on display as posters at the Design by Performance [7] exhibition at Z33 Centre for Contemporary Art and Design [8] in Hasselt, Belgium until the end of May. But don’t think they’re just about entomology - Edhv proclaims that they do not seek out to specialize [9] in anything specific, but rather that they are an organization filled with a variety of creative disciplines lending themselves to cutting edge processes. [10]The studio’s strong focus on research and concept is a welcome invitation to break established rules and boundaries before tangible design [11] is even considered.
