I love this installation by Rafael Gomezbarro featuring hundreds of ants. Their bodies were built by the assembling of two human skull casts.

About this installation, Gabriela Salgado says: “Rafael Gómezbarros’ work makes visible the overlooked. His intention is to address the plight of millions of displaced people who constitute the invisible but pervasive mass of immigrants crossing the planet. Buried in the narrative of diaspora lays a tribute to thousands of Colombians who suffered internal displacement and violent deaths as casualties of the armed conflict that wreaked havoc in the country for the most part of the last fifty years.”

The artist’s website doesn’t seem to be working at this time, but you can like his  Facebook page  for updates.
