Cyanotype (Living Honeybees & Various Sugars) on paper / 45.5 x 38.5 inches unframed

This image is a collaboration with living honeybees. Incorporating aspects of printmaking, photography and drawing this image was made using bee food, various sugars and wooden boards. In the fleeting moments that pass during exposure, the sun heats up the bee food and the bees move and vibrate. This movement causes the bees to appear as little ghosts, or soft glowing orbs of light. Their presence is recorded over long exposures using the cyanotype process. The bees represent the majority of the white (highlight) areas within this work. It is important to note that honeybees are in no way harmed by this project.
