So much stuff on Bees

It seems that everyone is into bees. Or is it just that phenomenon where you see what your looking for? Yesterday I found out about the company Rooftop Honey who are putting hives on the roofs of business's around the CBD in an effort to bring bees back to the inner city. I went to a sweet little cafe in West Melb called Rollerdoor just near the old entrance to Nth Melb railway station. They have hives on their roof and a young man spoke to me about the benefit of having bees. Perhaps people are gravitating towards bees in order to understand how to live more cohesively. I think sometimes these things operate on a subconscious level rather than an intellectual one.

Preparing for exhibition

I am working on an upcoming exhibition at 45 Downstairs that opens on the 19th of April.
I am currently creating an installation of glass drips that will be filled with honey in as many different varieties that I can find. So far I have 30 different honey's.
