Around We Go DFW II
AROUND WE GO DFW (2012)
Video Projection, Tree Stump, Termites, Bic Pen, (Projection Location Variable)
Around We Go is an experimental video and projection series that records termites following the lines of the Dallas-Fort Worth major highway systems.The termites follow the drawing (made with a bic pen) because of pheromones. The pheromones (smell) of the ink mimics that of one that the termites excrete to communicate with one another. Frustrated with the transition from Chicago to Dallas and the amount of time spent in the car for travel, this piece is a tongue and cheek reference to traffic jams, accidents, and the break down of travel systems. This piece has been projected on building in downtown Dallas as part of the Aurora Festival (2013) and also exists projected on various found logs.
