Apis/Homo 1, Phase 1

At Marble House Project residency, I created a human/bee suit that brings humans and bees together. The protective bee suit invites bees and humans to safely experience one another, offering space for reflection, observation, gratitude.

This work has been supported in part by

Marble House project, a nonprofit organization.

The inner layer is wire mesh and the outer layer is vinyl. Flowers line the inside of the helmet, inviting bees. The vinyl layer creates a small space for bees and humans to share sounds, smells, temperatures.
