About

Ant-ic Actions is an ongoing research and moving image project by Feral Practice, working with wood ants (Formica rufa) in a Kent forest, and with garden ants (Lazius niger).

A multispecies project that seeks human-nonhuman connectivity in the forest, drawing on research into shared materiality, creativity and consciousness. Experimental sound, video and voice techniques elicit and reflect the search for depth communication between species.

Supported by Stour Valley Creative Partnership.
