At the opening of the Semi-Wild Garden Exhibition in Kouvola, the bees were hiding, as it was raining.

An article in the Kouvola Sanomat mentions the work in the park (shortened online version, in Finnish only).

On the 12th of May, the gallery space was opened as well, with the Sundance Palimpsest. The Palimpsest is a collection of beeswax sheets with the recordings of the sun-rays in Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden, in the summer 2014.
The 37 sheets are framed and exhibited in the room, together with Heliocentric, a video work by Semiconductor (UK).

Both the installation and the audiovisual work, reproduce the path of the Sun, once recorded into beeswax and once on digital media. The works are a tribute to our Light Star, an essential factor of all Gardens of the World.
