Project Description

Godot Machine (2010)

The ‘Godot Machine’  is part of the ‘Ant Ballet’ project by Ollie Palmer. An ant is placed on top of a sphere, and the sphere always moves into the opposite direction of the ant, so the ant always stays on top. The ant is well fed making it leave a pheromone trail, but since it is on a sphere it will quickly pick up it’s own trail, making the ttrail stronger and stronger.
