This is equally terrifying as it is oddly amusing. Since 2007, sculptor Rafael Gómezbarros has brought his invasive swarm of giant ants to public buildings of his native Columbia.
Titled “Casa Tomada”, (Seized House), the ants represent the displacement of peasants due to war and strife. Spreading aggressively over the colonial façades of government structures, these unstoppable insects have in turn seized the homes of those in power.
Each of the 1300 ants are over 2 feet in length made of fiberglass resin, fabric, and branches.
