The goal of this installation is to encourage pollinators in the Toronto region to inhabit and reproduce as well as create an art project that would have a contemporary form and stand as a beautiful ‘beehive’ sculpture. The beehive would be constructed using 100% recycled corrugated cardboard, carved and stacked in a form rising approximately four feet high. Bees would nest in the summer and then vacate in the fall after the cocoons have been harvested.
