Adrian Moore thinks about bees

Adrian Moore thinks about bees …

Funded by the University of Sheffield Arts Enterprise Programme, Think About Bees … brought artists together with academics from four University of Sheffield faculties to discuss what we think about … when we think about bees.

Three artworks by three artists: Anthony Bennett, Paul Evans and Hondartza Fraga were successively impressed and projected onto the surface of (or installed within) a single craftsman-built beehive, manufactured from sustainable raw materials in the Derbyshire Peak District. The completed hive was then displayed in the Winter Gardens, Sheffield from 27th March until 4th April 2016.

These artworks were produced in collaborative dialogue with academics interested in bees including: Mike Braddick (History), Bob Mackay (English), Terry O’Connor (Forced Entertainment & Department of English), Adrian Moore (Music), Mike Holcombe, James Marshall & Chelsea Sabo (Computer Studies), Mike Siva Jothy (APS) and Patrick Fowler (Chemistry). Their interests range across bees as a political and ethical model for human society, bee behaviour and computer models, hexagonal geometries, the influence of bees on architecture, and their inspiration in dance and music.
