Human Beeing Video


With the Human Beeing project we put the focus on bees and their role in our urban and ecologic system. Our aim is to create an environment that displays the importance of bees not by teaching and preaching but through visual aesthetics. Bees do great stuff. They polinate our fields, they make honey. And they are not dangerous. More they are endangered. Through the loss of bees in the everyday environment people start to be afraid of them, mistake them with hornets or wasps. The Human Beeing project shows the harmless character, the busy activities and the ability to construct complex hive structures. We captured videos of a hive beeing built according to a real and given facade and project these movies edited back on that original facade. So we have scaled up bees crawling over urban facades, rebuilding it with honey combs. The original material was captured over a time span of 2 month and edited into a 90 minute, no time lapse, loop.
