What’s With The Ant?

If you were to walk into our office not knowing what we do, your first guess might be entomologists: insect scientists. Throughout the office we have ants of all shapes, sizes and colors decorating each and every corner. It’s funny how we came to be ant enthusiasts, but at Darkness to Light we hold the ant in high esteem.

Our Founder and CEO, Anne Lee, was watching television one night when she came across a program entitled “The Amazing Ant.” Anne was fascinated by some of the things she learned. Firstly, ants only walk forward, never backwards; on top of that ants are constantly communicating with each other through pheromones. Even more incredible is the fact that ants will only ever carry one grain of dirt at a time, but if left to work ants can actually change an entire landscape.

Anne realized that if we as citizens modeled ourselves after The Amazing Ant that we could make a huge difference one child at a time. At this she contacted Jeffrey Kennedy, a local artist whose work focused on ant sculptures, and our office has been rife with ants ever since.
