Donna Conlon is a Panama-based artist who often uses the relation between man and environment in her work. In her short film "Coexist" we get a close-up look at leaf cutter ants carrying political and institutional symbols like those seen in flag parades. The friction between the self oranised ant colony, based on evolutional strategies ratherthan on law and order, and the political symbols they carry, brings up questions on the issue of power and survival priciples. The revolution is here, it's now and it's green!
