Colony (2022)

COLONY is an immersive sound installation that probes the complex relationship between bees and humans and seeks to challenge the dominant bee-metaphors used for millennia to prop up religious and capitalist ideals, for example, of industry, purity and chastity. The work includes field recordings of hives, bees in flight, beekeepers at work, as well as the voices of people who work with bees. Voices include a blind beekeeper; a social practice artist who created an installation of hives in the shape of the notorious Pruitt-Igoe housing complex; an architect designing a bee sanctuary in Tanzania; an author of a book about being raised among bees; and a Michigan beekeeper working in the field.
