dancing with the bees!

During the past three years, OKNO has been exploring the potential of sensor-equipped beehives. Making use of innovatory technologies, we are studying bees as biomarkers providing information about the ecosystem they are part of. The collected data are stored in online databases, mapping the urban landscape and raising awareness of this shared living environment, and are used for the creation of ecological works of art.
Earlier this month, OKNO is organising a bee monitoring workshop at Valldaura Self Sufficient Lab in Barcelona.
On 18 and 19 April, the collaborators in the research on sensor-enriched beehive design are meeting at the OKNO premises for some brainstorming and working sessions on new and artistic approaches to sustainable, non-intrusive bee monitoring. In which ways can new media contribute to ecology and vice versa?
The sessions are closed on Friday evening at 7 with a screening, drinks and a bee dance workout.
