Chip Lord (Cleveland, Ohio, 1944) was the co-founder with Doug Michels of the group Ant Farm in 1968. For ten years Ant Farm worked the radical fringe of architectural practice, in the process they became video and performance artists. When Ant Farm dis-banded in 1978, Lord continued as a video artist producing works for single channel and installation. Currently, he is producing a series of films about cities and climate change and to date has produced Venice Underwater, New York Underwater, and Miami Beach Elegy. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Pompidou Center (Paris), SFMOMA (San Francisco), the Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley, CA), the Tate Modern (London) and other museums. He is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Film and Digital Media at the University of California, Santa Cruz and lives in San Francisco.
