Michael Aurbach’s termites

Posted by on Friday, March 11, 2011 in News, Winter 2011.

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.

    Very creative display, ideas like this on campus keep the students motivated.
