Termitaria Project 1996-2001

Termitaria was a large series of work, all to do with termites. The various works explore how science and culture have looked at termites and what concepts they have represented. One theme, for example, is the idea of infestation as a metaphor for processes of change in society. Between 1997 and 1999 the art studio building in London was infested with termite tracks and trails. An encyclopaedia was written, robots were built and romance novels were buried, decayed, eaten and retrieved.
