"Living Archive 7: Ant Farm revisits the architectural, art, video, and intermedia practices of the experimental collective Ant Farm, self-described "super-radical activist environmentalists." The volume includes Allegorical Time Warp: The Media Fallout of July 21, 1969, a richly illustrated investigation of the group's early tactical aesthetic operations and their attempts to forge alternative modes of life within an environment fundamentally transformed both by electronic technologies and the mass media as well as by new social movements and political and geopolitical forces. Also presented here is the complete Ant Farm Timeline, Ant Farm's own fantastically detailed and graphically intensive exposition of the broader scope and ambitions of their multi-faceted, countercultural practice, dating from the group's founding in late 1968 to their disbanding a decade later. Along with an archival dossier of their Truckstop Network project, these accounts demonstrate Ant Farm's remarkable and prescient articulation of critical modes of research-based praxis as well as strategies for engaging contemporary forces and technologies that re-emerge as all too relevant to today."--BOOK JACKET.
