The objects are presented in clear plexi boxes, each 13cm x 13cm x 13cm, on white sand. Materials: wax, latex, epoxy, bacteria, organic dyes, electronics, 3D printed PLA, seeds, aquarium sand.
Intelligent Guerrilla Beehive research: The Intelligent Guerilla Beehive is an artwork and a prototype for a speculative research project. It is a mobile shelter for swarming honeybees that combines in a radical way smart materials, biomimetic forms and biotechnology. The beehive is equipped with sensors to monitor the health status of the environment and that of the bees. Colonies of color-changing bacteria, living on the skin of the hive, act as biosensors. These small sculptures, belonging to a series of 12, were developed during the research of the IntelligentGuerrilla Beehive project.
