Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Through published projects, museum exhibitions, built works, and video, Ant Farm has continued to question the limits of architectural practice, its purpose, and its consequences. Blurring the line between art, architecture, and environmental activism, the Ant Farmers have consistently shown us new ways of analyzing, engaging, and understanding our world-even if we're left wondering about our future."—David A. Ross, editor of Art in Technological Times

"Ant Farm was a gorgeous god-knows-what: a collective project that straddled architecture and performance art and pioneered video art, that embraced some of the most radical ideas of the 1960s while remaining fond of iconic mainstream America, that was from the Bay Area and the East Coast and Texas, and that was generally as funny as it was smart. Now at last it's adequately documented for the benefit of future generations who should most definitely know about Media Burn and inflatable environments and the ideas behind Cadillac Ranch and Where They Are Now. Buy it today. No home is complete without."—Rebecca Solnit, author of As Eve Said to the Serpent: On Landscape, Gender, and Art

Format: Paperback
This book is full of great pictures documenting the complete Ant Farm collection of works. Original design sketches and interviews with the artists offer a lot of insight into the art group Ant Farm. I may be a bit biased since I study this kind of art, but I think someone could enjoy this book even if they know little to nothing about Ant Farm. In my opinion, its worth every penny.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The reason I purchased this book was to research a handmade 3-colored poster I purchased. The handmade poster was done for Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island. It couldn't have been a more perfect book. The book documents and gives the history of the Ant Farm. In the late 1960's and 1970's, a collective of artists and architects started to pushed the boundaries of their craft. They came from different schools such as RISD, YALE AND TEXAS. They band together and did video, performance art and new fresh architecture, way before many recognized what they were doing. Most people will remember them for the "Cadillac Ranch". Ten old Cadillacs stuck into a stark landscape in Texas. But they did much more than that. If your interested in this group of original artists, this is the book you want.
