This Artist Collaborates with Bees to Create Amazing Honeycomb Sculptures

Honeycomb Sculptures

Remember that bottle-shaped hive a few months back? Artist Aganetha Dyck has taken this same idea of collaborative art and produced stunningly beautiful sculptures.

Dyck’s interest in inter-species contact led her to experiment with honeybees and porcelain figures. She placed the sculptures in special apiaries and, over the course of weeks and months, they slowly showed signs of honeycomb patterns. What resulted is simply fascinating.

If you want to check out Dyck’s bee-inspired sculptures, ‘Honeybee Alterations’ will be at the Ottawa School of Art starting March 3rd.
