The Scaffolded Sound Beehive is an immersive multi-media installation which provides viewers an artistic visual and audio experience of activities in a beehive. Data were recorded in urban beehives and processed using sophisticated pattern recognition, AI technologies, and sonification and com- puter graphics software. The installation includes an experiment in using Deep Learning to interpret the activities in the hive based on sound and micro-climate recording.
