Large-scale kinetic sculpture.
Hive Mind features honey bees, giant versions of the very same bees found in the roof-top hives of West Village. The installation is designed to inspire a sense of wonder in the natural world by bringing the usually micro life of bees into a macro scale using the dynamics of the environment to power movement. Visit after dusk to see the bee wings illuminated.
Music emanating from the installation is based on recordings taken from inside actual bee hives. The unique sounds created by bees are given musical structure, adding a mystical ambience to the sculpture.
