In New York City, an army of ants....some one million strong.... h??? been transformed into what is perhaps the most unusual art exhibition to have opened there for quite some time.
Behind this clever combination of biology and culture is artist Alan Songfest, who travelled all the way to Panama in search of an entire colony of "Soldier" ants to begin his experiment in living art.
The exhibit, on public display at the New York Architectural League, is surrounded by plastic walls which the ants are unable to climb. Thus, both the curious and the serious-minded can admire the "ant art" knowing full well that any later itchiness is entirely a product of the mind.
