Best use I have yet seen for a fire ant colony. Looks very cool. It's art!

Are we concerned with all the ants being killed during this art fabrication?

Per Aldous Huxley, “Perhaps it's good for one to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he's happy? Would he ever want to do anything? What is art, after all, but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?”

Perhaps this art is a protest against the horrible inclemency of fire ants?

The intent of the thread is about creativity while eliminating a nuisance... killing them by poisoning impacts our environment... but this at least this leads to a small positive product.

IMHO of course.

There is no redeeming reason I know of why these insects should be here, other than this purpose. Of course I can learn and admit my error, should correct information be shared.

Perhaps this will help comprehension of the problem and allay concerns of their destruction.. https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/our...rted_fire_ants

Now, isn't that good to know... that "art" is in the eye of the beholder.

And if truly concerned about death of insects, perhaps those concerned, stop smashing with your TV and Airstream.

Aluminum art!

Um, actually my post was in favor of smelting fire ants with molten aluminum.

It's also poetic: killing fire ants with fire.
