Ant Farm is a performer group that carried out "architectural performances" across America during which the group unfolded its anti-architectural Inflatables , within which were conducted conferences and various events. In the road, they used a customized Chevrolet van ( Media Van) that turned into a mobile studio to share information and images. The Van was also indispensable as a power generator to inflate the structures.
To promote ideas that have no commercial potential, embracing the latest technologies at the same time as they criticize American culture.
Conferences and various events were conducted freely because they developed in their architectural inflatables.
