Artist Statement:


    Within the project A Diverse MonoCulture, van Leeuwenstein investigates whether it is possible to use robots to find a new balance in our ecosystem. After all, mankind naturally deploys new predators when something needs to be restored in an ecosystem. In ‘A Diverse Monoculture’ various robots come together to form ‘a beehive’ of new predators. These predators are used to restore the balance in our ecosystem by eating processionary caterpillars. The caterpillars are then converted into the fuel cells of the robots, so that they serve as fuel to keep the robot alive.
