SurveillAnts (2017)

Interactive biological installation with live ants, plexiglass, sand, wood, electronics.

 

SurveillAnts is an interactive, biological installation that explores the unseen world of ants. The project aims to provoke people’s curiosity about non-human life and touches on themes of emergent intelligence and emergent patterns over time. Through Surveillants, people can see and explore the movement of the ants over time, revealing colorful drawings and potentially, unseen patterns in the daily activities of ants.

This project was created through a collaboration with Leslie Ruckman.

 

Labs at NYU, Rockefeller University and Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel were consulted during the making of this project.
