Research into honey bees inspired the centerpiece sculpture at Britain’s MilanExpo pavilion. Acclaimed at the time, it has now been reassembled in London’s Kew Gardens. Sensors in a real beehive in a nearby meadow control lights within the sculpture and a soundscape recording. “We can get the idea of the importance of bees to a whole new audience” says the sculptor.
