NanoGigaPan Project Turns Enhanced Bug Pictures Into Art

The NanoGigaPan Project lets you see bugs in a way you’ve never seen (or perhaps never wanted to see) before.

The goal of the NanoGigaPan Project is to take “high resolution images of very small things.” Easy enough, but surprisingly artistic. With 400x magnified images of mosquito legs, cigarette filters, moths and ants, the work lets you see the true form of these minute beings. Take a look at the collection of black and white critters above, and play a game of ‘what is that a picture of?’
