Michael Basov’s work “Myrmicon” captures the movements of ants and intricate ornaments of their paths. Creating a “possible world”, in which ants can produce meaningful images, he tried to re-evoke the feeling of mystery and enchantment in the audience akin to that of the pristine artist. The first drawings were filled with magic. The discovery of a mere possibility to depict things with lines could be as incredible as an image created by an ant under our eyes. Thus, we may recognise the very origins of the human culture in these strange drawings and in our own experience of a miracle.
