Ren Ri Sculpts with Bees

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 08, 2014
Based out of Beijing, Ren Ri is an artist and beekeeper. Titled ‘Yuansu II’, his series features sculptures he collaborated on with bees. Cleverly using a method of chance, Ren rolled a die to determine the next position for the transparent plastic boxes every week. This guaranteed spontaneity and mystery in both party’s actions. Inside at the center of every structure, the queen bee resides while the worker bees build around her. A beautiful collaboration with nature while referencing the biblical concept of creation, Ren pushes the third dimension to ethereal heights.
