Insect Printer

What better way to tell someone you love them then to have nature’s creatures do the dirty work for you? Now you too can play God by having and army of caterpillars spell out your stalker tendencies. Yes, I realize this is not the usual “product concept” you are used to seeing here on Yanko Design, but it is an interesting way to work with nature as a replacement for your tree killing printer. No? Not buying that? Ok, that was a stretch…sorry. The point here is that with the simple use of some honey in a squeeze bottle, you can make animals do almost anything for food! Genius!

Text from the designer: The various messages on the leaves depend on the leaf consumption of the caterpillars. This design originated from one of disturbance in Korean history. A message of environmental protection is created by a caterpillar, an organism or nature, by eating the honey pasted parts of the leaf. The environmental protection message is more affective when it is delivered by nature itself rather than humans. And in such way man is automatically criticized. (The natural model which has no artificial factor is a beautiful book mark that carries a message.)

    Love me? Don’t you mean I love you?

    I think it’s a dumb idea… clearly I don’t see what’s so neat or new about it. It has been done before and it’s still stupid. I’m pretty sure people are going to complain about how we’re still trying to save the world by NOT killing plants?

    Plants = Air = Breathes = Stay alive. Duh?

    (I’m wondering why did you even bothered to post this stupid idea?)

      Love me, love me not, titty….get it?
      And as for the comment about saving the world…you think that a caterpillar eating a leaf is making a big contribution to destroying the world? I think you need to re-think who is the dumb stupid one.

    • designer says:

      well….
      this design does not focuse on “save the world by NOT killing plants”
      the point is the way to express the message.

    We think chinese are numerous, yes they are but compared to insects they are like germans. or french in the world…so i suggest to use insects instead of chineses to manufacture product at low cost…thanks you very much 金金乐道
