Formicarium by Jamey Grimes

Jamey Grimes is a Tuscaloosa-based artist whose collaborative interests focus on incorporating technology into sculptural installations, and his subject matter draws on scientific observations of the natural world. Grimes has shown his artwork in more than 100 exhibitions in nearly 20 states. In his Formicarium (a technical term for ant farm), plastic surfaces accumulate to form tunnels of light and shadow. Colors change over time, dynamically shifting the viewer’s interpretation of depth and form. In this installation, Lake City’s Jones-Carter Gallery will transform into a box full of tunnels, to be explored by humans, instead of ants; through March 14th.
