Artist Henk Hofstra splattered 500 orange (the Dutch’s favorite color) ants around the city of Drachten, The Netherlands. A big pile of the ants ultimately congregate in front of the theatre De Lawei to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Love the visual aspect of this public art, but I’m not sure the concept plays out well. Who wants to be covered in giant ants for their 50th birthday?
Each ant is three meters in length and two meters wide. The ants on the building are from synthetic material.
