Ren Ri created these enigmatic sculptures using bees. Ren builds the initial frameworks for the pieces out of transparent materials and wood, and then he inserts a queen bee into the structure. After the introduction of the rest of the hive, he then rotates the structures daily by using a die to dictate which way it should be rotated. This then causes the bees to build in varied directions because of the force of gravity. It is this method that gives these sculptures a unique look, with each one being different from the other.

I think these bee Sculptures are very unique, and I haven’t seen anything quite like them. It’s important at this time, too, to note that the World’s Bee population is decreasing year-on-year, so I reckon it’s a good thing to view how great bees and and what they actually do for the world — pollinate all the flowers and crops!
