Molten aluminum + an ant hill = art
Also an alternate ending to ‘Antz’
This video is so fucking weird but the end result is beautiful
What about the ants though??
Fire ant hills are usually seen as troublesome, especially if it’s in a high traffic area or if there’s kids or pets running around. You definitely don’t want to step in one. So most people kill them anyway, in much less interesting ways. Not only is this pretty, but pretty cool from a scientific perspective, too, to see the whole network of tunnels like that. And it’s not like people do this regularly enough to affect ant populations more than, as I mentioned before, killing them with insecticide or other methods.
And it doesn’t look like there’s many of them running around to begin with, so it might have been vacated already.
