Ant Ballet has been featured in William Myers‘ book BioArt: Altered Realities, recently published by Thames and Hudson. The book is a compendium of projects from sixty artists, collectives, and organizations from around the world working within the emerging and ever-changing field of ‘bioart’, and features people such as Philip Beesley, Vincent Fournier, Neri Oxman and Carole Collet.
Spread on the Ant Ballet project. There’s also an email interview with me in the back.
The book has been reviewed in
Science and We Make Money Not Art, among others. I’ve seen it on sale in the Palais de Tokyo and the Centre Pompidou bookshops in Paris, which leads me to suspect that it’s available somewhere near you, too. Or failing that, Amazon.
I was interviewed by Happy Famous Artists for their series Elastic Minds. We ate sushi and talked about dancing ants – you can read the interview here.
Welcome to London, Lucie and Jourik!
I had a nice conversation with Régine Debatty from
We Make Money Not Art on her radio show recently. The show aired on London-based Resonance FM on the 14th and 18th December 2012.
