Casting a Fire Ant Colony with Molten Aluminum
Evolving 130 million years ago, ants have walked the Earth since the days of the dinosaurs. These subterranean critters can be a plague in the summer and a mere memory in the winter. For most of the year ants invade our homes, and dominate our lawns.
Anthill Art is turning the tables using molten aluminum to give us a glimpse into the structure of ant colonies and create lasting pieces of art that opens our eyes to the vast worlds that lay hidden beneath our feet.
