Kuai Shen (Ecuador) is fascinated by social and biological insect behaviour. He works with ants to create audiovisual installations and performances, exploring the concept of insect aesthetics. His research crosses art and science, creating new relationships between humans and ants through the use of lively technologically-enhanced ecologies.
