Honey Trap

38 x 9 x 9 cm, 2021
Glass, honey, bees and beeswax

In a bid to raise awareness about the alarming decline of bee populations, I crafted an environmental activist installation that doubles as an interactive sculpture. This piece, an hourglass filled with honey and 50 dead bees, invites viewers to literally turn back time. The flowing honey, which becomes more fluid with heat, symbolizes the accelerating passage of time under the threat of global warming.

Bees, nature's primary pollinators, are crucial for our ecosystem and food supply. Data from the UN and Greenpeace highlight that bees are responsible for about 80% of pollination in nature and agriculture. Yet, each year, we lose approximately 30% of our bee population due to factors like pesticides, climate change, habitat destruction, urbanization, air pollution, and parasites like the Varroa Mite Destructor.

This artwork is more than a piece of creative expression; it's a call to action. It represents the urgency of the bee crisis and the dwindling time humanity has to address this critical issue. Through this installation, I aim to bring greater attention to the plight of bees, these remarkable creatures whose survival is intricately linked to our own.
