ARTIST STATEMENT: In perilous times, this installation represents a sense of fragility and interconnectedness. We seem to operate under the strange idea that culture is separate from nature, as opposed to being a manifestation.
The Western honey bee is increasingly under threat from Colony Collapse Disorder where entire bee colonies vanish. When honey drips it naturally forms arches that resemble those of roman architecture. For me this installation is a metaphor for the rise and fall of a civilization.
EXHIBITIONS: Urban Honey Installation took place OCAD University' Sharp Centre for Design in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in May, 2007. I currently have a new Honey Installation called "Colony Collapse" showing at Deleon White Gallery in Toronto as part of the exhibition "Bigger, Bigger and More Desperate" sponsored by Ecotecture Canada.
