Bees by Sarah Hatton

01Bees by Sarah Hatton

These hypnotic mandalas are crafted out by Canadian artist Sarah Hatton using thousands of dead honey bees.
As she said:
“The link between neonicotinoid pesticides and the worldwide decline of bee populations is a crisis that cannot be ignored.
I have arranged thousands of dead honeybees in mathematical patterns symbolically linked to monoculture crops, such as the Fibonacci spiral found in the seed head of the sunflower.
The viewer experiences the vertigo of this lifeless swarm, a dizzying optical illusion that echoes the bees’ loss of ability to navigate due to the toxins locked within the very source of their sustenance.”
