yellow beehive newsbox
bee scene inside the newsbox
los angeles artist bumblebee has been placing paper-mache beehives in abandoned phoneboxes for a while now, and has recently recolonized that other endangered species, the newsbox.
“Telephone companies have been abandoning their public telephone booths by taking out the phones and leaving the structures beehind. (Probably due to the rise in cell phone users.) I want to reuse these structures as a way of communication with the public once more by replacing that empty space with paper-mache beehives. To me, this symbolizes the irony beehind the question, ‘where have so many of the bees gone’ and the theory that cell phone signals have been misguiding their normal patterns of migration.”
