Description The Ant Farm architects produced experimental works on the "fringe of architecture" (1968-1978) and were influential video artists. Felicity D. Scott is Assistant Professor of Architecture at Columbia University and a founding editor of Grey Room. Reviews from ACTAR website: ¨Very beautifully designed and it includes an awe-inspiring 120-page Timeline of the group's output; these images alone – really only about two-thirds of the book's total eye candy – make it a rewarding and memorable read.¨ BLDGBLOG ¨The best monograph about the avant-garde architects, activists and performers...Ant Farm - Living Archive 7 demonstrates the relevance of Ant Farm's work by situating it within the context of contemporary events and culture. It is incredibly well documented and illustrated with pictures, sketches, and other historical images.¨ We Make Money Not Art ¨Less a book than an event: a kinetic collage...Scott’s agile prose gives us our bearings in the ephemera and breathes life into the archive.¨ artonpaper ¨I love this book. It has to be one of the most complete monographs I've ever seen. And it does a great job of describing the context within which their work appeared.¨ Life Without Buildings ¨Architects get radical with electronics and environmental politics in this 21st century look back at the Ant Farm...Ant Farm unleashed their video art and blobby structures —decades before the introduction of Maya and form-Z.¨ Architect Magazine ¨ A fascinating retrospective of the "super-radical activist environmentalist" art collective...Prescient stuff, the influence of which can be seen everywhere today, from the work of KLF to architectural proposals by Future Systems etc.¨ Kosmograd
