Bruce Tomb, Chip Lord, and Curtis Schreier (AIRs ‘08) comprised the collective Ant Farm whose practice crosses boundaries between architecture, art, and media. Founded in San Francisco by Chip Lord and Doug Michels, joined soon after by Hudson Marquez and Curtis Schreier, Ant Farm’s Cadillac Ranch sculpture and the Media Burn performance continue to resonate with art audiences more than 40 years after they were created. In 2007 Lord and Schreier asked Bruce Tomb to join them to realize a commission from SFMOMA – Ant Farm Media Van v.08 [Time Capsule], shown in “The Art of Participation: 1950 – Now.” The project was realized at the Headlands in Building 961, and drawings were exhibited at Gallery Paule Anglim. The piece has travelled to the Estuaire biennale in Nantes, France, the deCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA, and will be at the ASU Museum in Tempe, AZ this Fall.
