    anthill architecture
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    From scarlethue's personal cargo

    anthill architecture

    this is much better than just torturing ants with a magnifying glass and the hot sun. pour plaster down an anthill, pull it out, ta-da! instant sculpture
