Cast beehives highlighting the global decline of the honey bee
Location: The green space behind the cake stand.

‘Hives’ aims to imply absence, transience and loss and increase public awareness of the global decline of the honeybee population. As our primary pollinators, their continued loss would ultimately herald our own.
