A continuation of the bee crisis – this note links with various posts of mine and contributes to the worrying plight of our pollinator friends

Exploring The Invisible

This work was inspired by the depressing news, released this week,  that explains the massive die off of bees. Bees it would seem, like some kind of airborne swarm filter feeder,  concentrate environmental  pollutants,  like pesticides and fungicides,  and this makes them hypersensitive to a natural parasite called  Nosema cerenae

With a nod to  Ackroyd and Harvey, Roger Hiorns and to Ballard’s “Crystal World”, this work reflects the ability of bees to concentrate environmental chemicals and highlights fears for their extinction.
