Ant colonies are amazing, beautiful, complicated things. Flatbed scanners, on the other hand, well, they're basically the opposite of all that. Five years ago, François Vautier "installed" an ant colony inside an old scanner he had, and let the ants do their thing. Once a week, for five years, he scanned the proceedings, and watched as the ants' nest invaded, and essentially ate the internals of the scanner itself. The resulting video is short and amazing.
