The colony in “Bumble Domicile”, 2008 Movie by Rob King
The integrated media installation, “Bumble Domicile”, integrated a lot of elements, and is comprehensive at Resonating Bodies (resonatingbodies.wordpress.com). The Bombus impatiens (bumble bee) colony in this video clip was built-in into “Bumble Domicile” through the set up “Apiograph” (see online video by that title, also right here). Making use of a live knowledge feed of the pollination activity from this colony of bumbles found inside the gallery, a digital garden was grown, visualizing the genetic diversity that bee pollination generates. The colony box sat in a window adjacent to a compact backyard garden which was tended by neighborhood artists and youth whose interactions with its plants equipped “Apiograph” with data (facts at the Resonating Bodies web page).
Resonating Bodies is a collection of integrated media installations and neighborhood outreach tasks which focuses on biodiversity of pollinators indigenous to the normal and urban ecosystems of Toronto and beyond. It has a YouTube and Vimeo channel.
