The Fly Printer – Extended investigates the increasing interest of the artist in the merger of a human, a non-human, and an artificial entity.

The work is developed based on the previous versions of the Fly Printer. It contains biological organisms -fruit flies- that are treated in the work as image producing technology, but additionally it includes intelligent system with camera and convolutional neuronal network (CNN) for image recognition and interpretation. In other words, this artwork creates an autonomous system that firstly produces images; secondly, a machine vision system observes these images that are patterns produced by the flies; and thirdly, artificial intelligence (CNN) will interpret these images to itself and to a human observer.
