Beehive

Michaela Nettell

Dvokanalna video instalacija, GB, 2010
A visual exploration of the mysterious and poetic workings of an apiary. Bevelled glass and mirrors fracture and re-frame sequences of high-speed video, drawing attention to the delicate rhythms and architectures of the hives. Presented on two adjacent monitors, the video loops compare intricate honeycomb structures with man-made frames, the collective behaviours of a colony with the minuscule movements of individual bees.
