Protozoan Flagellates from Jessica Field on Vimeo.

MAKE subscriber Rob Cruickshank sent us a link to the site of Canadian artist Jessica Field. Jessica makes these wonderful, funky little robo-critters, some BEAMish, others more sophisticated, with computer-control. I like how she “programs” failures/shortcomings into her robot creations. (Wait, don’t most robots do that on their own?)

Jessica Field [Thanks, Rob!]
