Artist Aganetha Dyck has been working with honeybees for 20 years. Her honeybee art involves placing objects in bee hives where they are covered with wax by the bees. Unfortunately, her exposure to bees has led to an allergy to bee stings. She continues to work with bees by enlisting a collaborator, photographer William Eakin. Dyck directs the placement of objects in the bee hive by Eakin and Eakin photographs the results. The result is an aesthetically appealing work of art that is a collaboration between humans and insects.
Their work is part of an exhibit: Animal Intent at the Apexart in New York City. The exhibit is a celebration of collaborations between humans and animals. The exhibition is open through March 18.
