  • Experimenting with bees

    This experiment explored how we could create designs through bees.  We created a structure from bees wax and put it in a bee box, which we populated with bees. Our hope was the bees would build on our structures. The bees actually broke down our forms and produced something much better. We also fed the bees with different-coloured sugar syrups. The syrups were in a dispensers that open different colours depending on which websites one of our group members was visiting. The aim was to explore how consequences of online activity could be physically manifested.
      This experiment was a part of a larger project (oeuf) for a program called Design Led Futures. The aim of the program was to design something for 80 years in the future.
