FLIES CREATE ART WITH SHIT AND VOMIT

Los Angeles artist John Knuth made some flies shit onto canvas and the results were pretty spectacular. Knuth kept 250,000 flies in canvas-walled enclosures at his studio, feeding them a concoction of water, sugar and digestible coloured pigments. The flies then shit and puked onto the canvas walls for six weeks, producing 'dense layers of chromatic fields'.

The end results are utterly awesome. Knuth said he was drawn to the whole process as he feels the 'unpredictable mark-making mirrors comtemporary society.' I agree, last week I saw a tramp take dump on a freshly swept pavement.

Have a look at the entire process below.
