Since 1991, Aganetha Dyck, a Canadian artist, focuses on addressing communication between humans and bees. Dyck's life goal is to collaborate human elements and animal instinct into a work of art that completely fuses the two together. To accomplish her goal, Dyck's artwork consists of placing ordinary broken objects in an apiary (a bee yard) and lets the bees mend them with their honeycomb. This process results in creating statues encased in honeycomb and transforms them into inspiring natural shapes. Dyck believes by incorporating honeycomb into her artwork, she is one step closer to accomplishing her goal. By working with the bees, Dyck is able to evaluate our relationship with them and record of our behaviors. Her relationship with bees allows people to learn and understand the importance of them, while displaying nature's beauty at the same time.
The honey bee is one of the most familiar insects in the world. This particular insect plays an essential role in the human and natural world.
