AAFJE BEP VAN GRIEKEN

For the bees




If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man. this is a quote from Albert Einstein.

I built a one square meter of garden in a wooden box on my student-room’s balcony. For the bees and for myself.

For Our Bees is a work that I made whit-in the theme activism. I wanted to do something for the bees, so I planted flowers in different places in Arnhem. Using photogrammetry I captured this action and put it into a virtual world for the bees. A world for bees where vegetation never dies and where I keep on planting more and more flowers forever. I created a connection between the real world and the virtual world. The flowers you see in this world are in UV light, because thats how bees see.
