Beesworld, a program inspired by watching the behaviour of bees gathering nectar, was installed at an exhibition at the Study Gallery in Poole in November 2008. More can be found about this work on my art website.
Every time we make a decision we choose a path from a wide range of possibilities. As we follow our path so it interacts with those of others. Imagine the shapes we would see if the paths we followed were made visible. Scientists would make maps representing these routes to analyse them. I do it for aesthetic purposes, to celebrate their complexity and simplicity, their messiness, ugliness and beauty.*
