If you are in Albuquerque this weekend, check out an incredible art piece at the Alvarado Farm. SOUND COLONY by Nina Dubois, functions as an acoustic chamber, a human-scaled portal into the communicative modes that connect the world of the hive with the practice of beekeeping. It references the visionary architecture of R. Buckminster Fuller, whose research into energy and material efficiency was inspired by universally occurring patterns in nature. This is part of the ISEA 2012 Conference.
