Art elevates, it does not deconstruct.
Hmm, I bet a lot of artists would disagree with that requirement. Then again, you could be saying that the destruction of the anthill is equivalent to deconstruction. I would disagree with that personally. Any time you create art (just like any time you create *anything*) you must destroy something else. Creation and destruction are just a transitioning of forms. Just drawing a sketch in my notebook destroys my pencil. Hail Entropy.
Then again (again), you could be saying something totally different. That's often enough the case.
Anyway, the point of sharing the anthill video was nothing about art; it was just to show a natural *form*; that is, the shape of the tunnels beneath the ground, hidden from human eyes. Maybe the person who poured aluminum into it considered what he was doing "art", but I don't think it is, anymore than the person who used a high-definition camera to capture snowflakes at extreme detail was making "art".
Natural forms are anti-art, because creatures don't create them. Rather, they just occur, more or less inexplicably.
All I'm doing is appreciating the pure forms of these things. Shapes, angles, dimensions, colors, those are things that don't need created, they just need to be seen.
