Stereolithography, branch, cable,
Variables dimensions, 2009

Enlargement, by stereolithography, of a caterpillar, the Cerura Vinula, whose can in fact grow to be 3 inches.

“Are you content with your size now?” said the Caterpillar.
“Well, I should like to be a little larger, sir, if you wouldn’t mind,” said Alice: “three inches is such a wretched height to be.”
“It is a very good height indeed!” said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high).
