Abstract/Summary Ant Farm were a North American architecture / art collective established in 1968 in San Francisco and disbanded in 1978.1 Ant Farm primarily experimented with alternative technologies and DIY production methodologies, including the hand-made Inflatocookbook1 and Inflatables Illustrated.1 It will be argued that Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s concept of the machinic provides a particular insight into the relation between Ant Farm’s collective practice and their DIY sensibility.
