Video documenting an experiment in the mangrove forests of Thailand. Live fireflies (Pteroptyx malaccae) are made to synchronise their flashing with computer controlled LED’s. By adjusting the speed and colour of the LED’s the artists influence the speed and rhythm of thousands of flashing fireflies. Through this video they explore the idea of free will and transform a machine into a living actor inside a colony of insects.
