Honeybees in Urban Environments
Melliferopolis intertwines bees and arts, using the city as its canvas.
Melliferopolis experiments with new ways of understanding bees, beekeeping and the ecology of the hive, as well as other insect pollinators. The project examines the role of honeybees in an urban context and explores the many differing relations between humans and these semi-wild insects. Melliferopolis creates shared spaces for Human-Insect cultures and facilitates encounters through artistic installations in public spaces, and visible actions such as participatory interventions, workshops, lectures, rituals and performances.
