When chaos strikes the colony, a lost ant resorts to traveling cross-country by Antrak train. This Studs-Terkel-Wannabe journeys into the unknown, buoyed by the grandeur of American landscapes, the fleeting intimacy of conversations with strangers, and a deep desire to understand what is going on beyond its own colony. Shayna Strype constructs this story through manipulated cardboard objects, toy theater puppetry, live feed projection, and footage from interviews she recently conducted with Amtrak passengers across the US.
