lapillus bug


KONO Michinari / HOSHI Takayuki / KAKEHI Yasuaki [Japan]


The lapillus bug is a small insect-like gadget which hovers over a breakfast plate. This unremarkable inanimate grain is trapped in midair through the power of ultrasonic waves. Though it looks like a fly, it actually likes to play with humans. It reacts to light and the objects placed on the plate, and can display a wide range of behavior.
