Art & Nature—Social Communication in the Insect World: Video Screening and Science Talk


Wave Hill House

Learn how social insects—ants, bees, termites and more—have long inspired the imagination of artists and the curiosity of scientists. In conjunction with Call & Response, the fall exhibition in Glyndor Gallery, this program presents a video art piece by former Sunroom artist aricoco, exploring the behavior of bugs that live in highly organized societies. Chemical ecologist Qian “Karen” Sun follows with a talk about how these creatures “speak,” cooperate and achieve colony-level success. Entomologist Lawrence Forcella provides a display of live ants and termites.

Free with admission to the grounds.
