Mounds

Art by Tara Donovan

In the marvelous Wonder! exhibition at the Renwick Gallery, Tara Donovan created towering termite mounds from hundreds of thousands of index cards. I don’t have the catalog, so I can’t speak to the artist’sĀ intent; to my sensibilities, using office supplies to create enormous, ominous hives where individuality is an alien concept… well, yes. Perhaps my interpretation is a bit on the nose.
