Melliferopolis – Bees in Urban Environments

Melliferopolis is a trans-disciplinary initiative at the intersection of art and bio-sciences centered around honeybees.

Leaving the merely anthropocentric view to focus on an api-centric world, we explore together by engaging with non-human entities (insects, plants) and systemic phenomena (hive mind, ecological systems, community).

Melliferopolis was launched in Helsinki, Finland, in 2012 by Christina Stadlbauer and Ulla Taipale.
