Kunst mit Ameisen: Antworks

Die Künstlerin Catherine Chalmers macht in Zusammenarbeit mit Blattschneiderameisen kleine Kunstwerke. Sie erklärt:

The work encourages us to empathize with bugs. One reason they disgust us, Chalmers believes, is that they seem immoral, or at least differently moral. „We see ourselves as individuals,“ she said. „And we see insects as being this uniform, formless mass that will sacrifice themselves and do all these sorts of things.“ Some of her photos capture a praying mantis eating the head of her mate. „Civilization is a march for greater and greater and greater control over the world,“ she said. But nature doesn’t play by our rules.
