Michael Aurbach’s termites




A small swarm of cardboard termites staged a stealth assault on the “Tree of Learning” on the Library Lawn earlier this year. Students of Professor Michael Aurbach fashioned the swarm, dubbed “bronze-eating termites made by ACME Art and Termite,” during their spring assemblage class. The three-hour attack, which left the tree unscathed, is the third in a series by Aurbach’s assemblage class. In earlier years, the tree has faced down a tank and a 20-foot-long chain saw.
