The Interconnectedness of All Things
I am the Lead Artist and Curator of the ongoing collaborative creative project called ‘FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things’.
It was initiated it in 2017 and conceived as a way to use art to concentrate attention on the status of the British bee population - how endangered it is.
Each year, I create fifty small individual bee art pieces. I then invite another fifty artists, makers, writers, musicians to produce one new companion work in response to the ecology of one of those bees.
The FIFTY BEES presentation creates a unique narrative between works and artists.
It makes explicit how pollinators are completely interlinked with our ecosystem.
