Bees

Bees is a joyful interactive work in which children are welcomed into a world of community, communication, wonder and imagination.

Inspired by the mysterious life and work of bees, this re-imagining of public space involves the slow uncovering of an intricate unseen world. Children are immersed in the sounds, shapes and scents of the bee world, from their familiar buzz to honeycomb houses. Bees uses ritual, non-verbal communication and the secret world of bee movement to provide a range of access points for children to participate.

The sound design was developed using Raspberry Pi Zero 2W, running Supercollider generating sound in real-time. An IMU was used to track movement of the performers. Elements of the sound score were controlled using this movememnt data.
