The story of the 'Migr-Ants' begins as follows: "They were merely settled in their new desert home, when all hell broke loose. Fire broke out at every corner of their hive. And as if – from one moment to the other – the laws of gravity wouldn’t exist anymore, parts of their hive were floating through the air. The queen gathered her flock in the temple and asked them to pack whatever they can carry and meet at the entrance of the desert metropolis. The prophet had told them long before, that they were a travelling people, not meant to settle down and enjoy the fruits of their land forever...". And thus began they trek to Australia to recreate AntVegas.

“Meeting people and learning how to use the tools in Second Life™ to build and script, I found an exciting new place to design and create art in the virtual world. But, most important I found a place to share my passion with other people. In October 2009 I turned my region/island Aeonia into a place for people to visit and invited artists interested to share knowledge and ideas in different art disciplines to work with me. Together we work side by side on art and collaboration art projects sharing skills and insights”.
