WORKSHOP Sensing Bees

The artist and beekeeper collective Moabees offers a visit at the beehives who live and work at Haus der Statistik. Sensors and processors which are installed in the hives collect data showing the development and well-being of the bees, along with our human senses of sight, sound and scent. In this workshop we will take photos in the surrounding of the hives, using a bee camera and the photochemical technique of Cyanotype (blue print). The bee camera imitates the composite eye of the bee. Cyanotype uses ultra violet light (sunlight) which the bees can see, whereas it is usually invisible for the human eye. We will also collect and use artefacts of the building and inner courtyard which had been abandoned for many years.
