inside the hive

another trip to the bee house, this time we inserted a mic right into the hive and captured some fantastic audio of local and general bee activity. we worked with researcher Carla Evangelista  in installing out mics and in discussion our observations and poetic readings of the bees activities. (pictured below: in the first image, Trish and Andrew at the bee house entrance, and in the second and third image Andrew with Carla installing the mic in the observation hive)




plans: we have taken away a half worked frame of comb to embed a piezo into, in the hope it will be a more long term insertion into a hive and capture vibrations through and into the comb itself.
