: We've installed an ant colony in the window of the
: artnetweb storefront (426 Broome) that can be seen from the street
: at any time of day or night. You're also welcome to
: come inside and look around at what we're doing in the
: space. Eventually we'll have a live cam set up for the
: web.

: I'd like to use this forum as an adjunct to what we're
: doing in the space.

: Individually the ants are dumb (like a terminal), collectively
: they are creative.

: We are exhibiting our working rather
: than our works and there is no preconceived plan other
: than to imagine a continuous surf(ace) composed of
: discrete (noncontinuous) elements.

: We are responding to each other and the objects we make
: and finding new metaphors using elements from our
: past work and inventing new ones.

: We are creating a problematic space that is emergent in
: order to understand the possibilities of the digital.

: We hope to continue this metaphorical surface outside
: of the physical space

We took down the installation last weekend (July 14).
and are continuing the project online.
